From January 25th until February 16th 2019, DEEP Germany held a project in a shelter in Cologne, Germany, which took place over four weekends. The project titled, ‘All of This is Me’ worked with children between 10 and 15 years old who live in the shelter. The project encouraged participants to reflect on their various identity features thereby shifting the stigmatising attribute ‘refugee’ into the background. The aims of this project were to identify their modified living conditions together, to strengthen their self-confidence and to value the plurality of their identities.
We are very grateful for the cooperation with and the realization of the project through ‘Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Arbeit Bildung Kultur NRW e.V.‘.
