interaction Leipzig e.V .

Connecting people with art and culture

Interaction Leipzig is a non-profit organization that facilitates encounters between people from different cultures and backgrounds. We do this because migration and diversity are normal for us and we believe that everyone should have equal rights to help shape our society. With its art and cultural offerings, interaction Leipzig provides the platform for this.

Why we exist:

interaction Leipzig e.V. was founded in 2015 in the context of increased migration to Germany. We are convinced that art and culture are a powerful tool for change. They can help to break down prejudices, overcome barriers and create an open and tolerant society. Our aim is to promote encounters between people with and without migration experience. We believe that these encounters at eye level are important in order to develop mutual understanding and respect.

Our offers

We offer a wide range of events and projects to promote intercultural exchange. We call them “interactions”. These include creative workshops, music and movement activities, theater projects and much more. With our interactions you can discover your artistic skills, learn new things and exchange ideas with others. We invite everyone to shape the city together, use existing resources, form networks and break down barriers.

Our vision

We dream of a society in which all people can participate equally. Free from discrimination, exclusion and racism. From together instead of alone. In a city that everyone can help shape. cultural diversity and migration are seen as the norm. We believe that art and culture play an important role in this. With our work, we want to help ensure that encounters between people with and without migration experience take place on an equal footing.
