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: kultur@chiala.at
 
Looking forward to meeting you and hearing your stories! 😀
