  • Storytelling workshop: Storytelling is resistance. In this class, we discover different ways of storytelling in order to be heard, to be understood and to share. We use a lot of creativity to express ourselves. With a human right angle, we learn about our rights and how to claim these. In the meantime, we have fun, get to know each other and learn about other cultures and perspectives.

CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

  • Sports: MOSAIK offers various sport activities for children, women and adult groups always according to the season and the interest of people. In the past especially the swimming courses in summer were a huge success. There are also regularly soccer matches and basketbal games. We regard physical activities as crucial as a contrast to our educational offers and the random boredom of daily life in the camps.
