🌳 Oeverseepark 🌳

We have a park! Our 16th Afrika Festival will not take place in the Augartenpark this year because of the construction work that is currently beeing done there. We’ll celebrate all together in the nice and charming Oeverseepark behind the Postgarage! Not only is it quite close to the Augartenpark, the trees, the water and the hills there will create a perfect atmosphere for our festival. Let’s move to the other side of the river Mur together!

See you there! 🌳💕

Chiala freut sich heuer wieder, Kooperationspartner vom Crossroads Filmfestival in Graz zu sein!

Das Crossraods Team hat wieder eine spannende Film- und Diskussionsreihe für euch geplant, in dem Menschen, Initiativen und Bewegungen gezeigt werden, die sich für den Erhalt unserer Lebensgrundlagen und sozialen Errungenschaften einsetzen und ein gutes Leben für Alle ermöglichen wollen. Mit beeindruckenden Bildern werden inspirierende Geschichten erzählt, die Handlungsmöglichkeiten aufzeigen und Mut machen.

Gespräche im Anschluss an die Vorführungen ermöglichen es, sich mit Filmemacher*innen und Protagonist*innen auszutauschen und die von den Filmen behandelten Themen zu diskutieren. Zusätzliche Vorträge, Debatten und Workshops vervollständigen das Programm.

Call for participation – My Name is Language

We are looking for people who consider themselves as part of the African Community in Graz for a short discussion about their name(s) on Wednesday, the 25th of July at 19:00
Names cross cultural boundaries in a very specific way: in intercultural contexts they are often misunderstood, mispelled, mispronounced or even completely changed to adapt to the dominant culture!
The artist Nicoline van Harskamp (Netherlands) is coming to Graz to hear your stories about your names, about what they mean, and how you live them. She will direct the workshop and record the conversation (audio only) for a performance during steirischer herbst in september 🍁🍂.
You can talk in English, German, or whatever language you want!
When? Wednesday, the 25th of July from 19:00 to 21:00
Where? Chiala, Griesplatz 13
If you are interested, write us a short e-mail:
Looking forward to meeting you and hearing your stories! 😀


Unser Programmheft ist endlich da!
