The goal is to create an active connection between welcome classes and regular classes, between committed neighbourhood residents and refugees who recently moved here.
Through personal texts, which allow some distance through the art form of poetry, German citizens and newcomers will become more closely acquainted. They come to know one another’s respective backgrounds. The greatest benefit for everyone is the empathy that will inevitable result.
The Digital Box is a format of our Poetry Project that has been adapted for school use and other integration initiatives and which has been successfully utilised for years by a private, multinational group in Berlin.
The concept can be easily implemented using the teaching materials provided and is available in four languages - German, English, Persian, and Arabic.
Participants can download the complete Digital Box.
