On Thursday,17th October 2019 from 5 to 8 pm.

What is the topic?

Exchange of experiences from people who are new in Berlin and people who are from Berlin or have been there for a longer time. Let’s talk about your impressions of Germany, were they good ones or bad ones? And how could it have been better?

Why is it important?

Giving you the opportunity to openly talk about your first impressions of Germany and share that experience with other Newcomers. Find similarities or get to know how other people felt. Also, we are looking forward to the exchange between Newcomers and people originally from Berlin to increase the understanding of each other.

What is happening at the workshop?

The focus is on your experiences and impressions. We will have time to talk about them, find reasons why some impressions were not so good. We will prepare some interactions to help us understand and reduce stereotypes. In the end we are hoping for a better understanding of our culture and more tolerance with each other.

Who can participate?

The workshop is open to everybody! We would love to have different people with different backgrounds here. Newcomers, New Berliners / Old Berliners ….


At MACHWERK in the Alte Münze, Am Krögel 2, 10179 Berlin. (House 3, 1. floor left)
