Our offer “Music without Borders” is a musical workshop for children and young people with refugee experience in Düsseldorf. Together with the KRASS team, the young residents of the refugee accommodations have a carefree time in a workshop atmosphere.
Integrate in a playful and creative way
The range of activities extends from singing with instrumental accompaniment to drumming and choreography. While the focus of the songs is on German or English pieces of music in order to specifically promote exchange and language in a playful and creative way, the children and young people learn to approach each other and keep time together through the choreography. In addition, the offer strengthens the participants’ sense of togetherness and serves to develop their creative potential.
First contact with the German language
“We do a lot of trust work,” explain the project’s creators, who have been supporting our association since March 2016, and continue: “We at Krass e.V. are the participants’ first contact with German society and the language. It is particularly important to the KRASS team to gain the trust of the participants and to make this the focus of their work. The project aims at a sustainable integration of the new neighbors, which is achieved through good support and regular visits.
