- POWER TO US
Unfortunately, POWER TO US events cannot take place.
Our intention with this project was to provide artistic workshops and events for youth who are marginalized due to (ascribed) race or religion. POWER TO US was to be created with initiatives whose members define themselves primarily as BIPoC, since we, as a majority white institution, could not carry out this project alone. Due to different points of view regarding content and organizational reasons, the project cannot be carried out at the current time in July in such a way that all project participants can stand behind it.
Furthermore, for reasons of transparency, we find it important to state that one of the people involved in the project felt discriminated against by the use of supposedly everyday terms. We would like to apologize for this and have taken up the feedback of the persons involved directly and want to realize a joint reappraisal.
The fact that this has happened shows how deeply anchored everyday forms of discrimination are in our structures and how important it is to constantly educate ourselves in this area. We continue to strive to break down barriers experienced by marginalized people and to critically reflect on ourselves as an institution.
We plan to postpone the events of the project to fall 2022.
POWER TO US is a creative project with young people between 14 and 20 who are marginalised because of (ascribed) origin or religion.
The core of POWER TO US is a varied workshop series from different artistic directions: Theatre & Performance, Photography, Music & Dance. The joint creative learning is complemented and accompanied by empowerment offers. The workshops lead into a diverse evening programme with readings, music, party and talks, which is open to all audiences.
The cooperation partner of POWER TO US is the post-migrant self-determined project Perspectives in Leipzig-Grünau.
