One of the activities, that the InCommon migrant women in Austria, participated for the first time ever in their lives was a visit to an art exhibition. They self-organised this visit with some of the volunteers from the InCommon network.
As a satellite event to the ‘For Forest’, probably the biggest installation art project in Europe inspired by the famous Austrian painter Max Peintner, this event was coordinated with the City Art Gallery of Klagenfurt, who are part of our stakeholder network. They provided a personalised guided tour of the exhibition.
19 persons, including 15 migrant women from Afghanistan, Congo, Iraq, Azerbaijan and India along with local attendants, male and female, from different nationalities from Europe visited the Art Exhibition. The City Gallery also organised a art workshop for the children, who had accompanied their mothers.
This activity connects with CC2: Exploration and realisation of common grounds between cultures.
