Since the year 2000, the non-profit association KinderKulturKarawane e.V. from Hamburg has been inviting seven youth groups from countries of the global south to Europe every year. These groups present their artistic productions in schools and cultural centers and tell about their lives, their fears, wishes and hopes. The young artists mostly come from marginal conditions (street children, child laborers, warriors).
The aim is to enable an equal dialogue between the young people from different cultures. The exchange on the level opens up the space to discover new perspectives, to build up knowledge about global connections and to acquire motivation for own future-oriented action.
