”TAMA TAMAN” in the language of the Mandinka ethnic in West Africa means ”to go on a journey together”.
And that is what the project is about: To go on a journey together with young people with and without refugee backgrounds so that they get to know each other, live together for nearly two weeks and teach each other more about their own culture, religion and personal traditions. They go on a new intercultural journey together.
The TAMA TAMAN project is an intercultural exchange which brings young people from different countries like Italy, Germany and others together to share stories and take part in different seminars and workshops which are mainly about identity, home, critical whiteness and racism. They learn and experience how art can connect all the special parts in each of us and how it can be an expression of identity.
