Motasa'a: Nachhaltigkeit von unabhängigen Kulturorten in Jordanien, Frankreich und Deutschland

Das Projekt "Motasa'a" fördert wirtschaftlich, sozial und ökologisch nachhaltige Ansätze unabhängiger Kulturorte in Jordanien, Frankreich und Deutschland, indem es den Wissensaustausch und das Peer-to-Peer-Learning stärkt.  

Acht Kulturorte aus Frankreich, Deutschland und Jordanien wurden ausgewählt, welche bereits nachhaltige Praktiken in ihrer Arbeit umsetzen. Vertreter*Innen dieser Orte haben sich im Juni 2023 gegenseitig besucht, um die Ansätze der jeweils anderen Kulturorte kennen zu lernen, sich über Best-Practices und Herausforderungen auszutauschen und voneinander zu lernen. 

Während einer einwöchigen intensiven Arbeitsphase Ende Juli 2023 in Jordanien, haben die Vertreter*Innen dieser Orte dann ihre Erfahrungen im Bereich wirtschaftlicher, sozialer und ökologischer Nachhaltigkeit (wie alternative Formen der Einkommensgenerierung, soziale Inklusion, Advocacy, horizontale Entscheidungsfindung und Organisationsprozesse) zu Papier gebracht und im Rahmen eines zweitägigen Forums in Amman mit einer breiten Öffentlichkeit geteilt.    

Das Projekt wurde gemeinsam vom Goethe-Institut in Jordanien, dem Institut francais de Jordanie und MedeArts durchgeführt und durch den Deutsch-Französischen Kulturfonds finanziert.
