Blickwinkel - Mut zur Perspektive

From April 14-15th we had our first in person meeting of all three partners of our new project 10fold. After many, many virtual calls in the last months we knew each other’s apartment interior quite well. Therefore it was long overdue to get together in person. The meeting took place in Bordeaux in the South West of France, where our project partner Cap Ulysse welcomed us extremely warmly. They made sure that we were always well oriented, well fed, highly caffeinated and ready to work.

Over the course of two days, we discussed the progress of our project plan, the status quo of implementation as well as our next steps and future activities.

In the evenings we had the pleasure to stroll through the city and taste the delicious French cuisine – c’était magnifique!

We can’t wait to host our French partners in Vienna in fall, but first we have some exciting project activities ahead of us. And some more Zoom calls. 😉

10fold is our first project co-funded by the EU and is happening over the course of 2022. Together, the three organizations Orient Express (Austria), Cap Ulysse (France) and Blickwinkel (Austria) are collecting 10 life stories and 10 comic stories based on the experiences of inspiring women. We are currently in the phase of interviewing and finding stories to write and draw about. Soon we will have some first sketches to show. Stay tuned. 🙂

10fold. Stories against discriminations: a creative project to fight against discriminations.
This one-year project (January to December 2022) aims to highlight the real-life stories of 10 migrant women of all ages and backgrounds. On completion, a website and a Comic Zine will be available in three languages: English, French and German. 
Below, the kick off meeting of our new project 10fold. Stories against discriminations that took place on January 12, in collaboration with Orient Express and Blickwinkel from Vienna.

On 12.2.2022 our first project meeting for our latest Erasmus + project 10fold. Stories Against Discrimination took place. In this project we and our partners from Orient Express and Blickwinkel – Mut zur Perspektive will collect ten life stories of participants from our basic education courses. In these stories, they tell us about their experiences with discrimination and their coping strategies to overcome these negative experiences.
The stories are published both in narrative form as a text book and as a comic zine – drawn by the project partner Blickwinkel. The resulting materials serve as authentic learning materials and promote both communicative and linguistic competencies, while at the same time offering opportunities for discussions.
In this way, 10fold creatively links the learning fields of (second) language acquisition with the topics of equality and participation.
The acquired comics will also be published as a book, for all those who are interested in comics and exciting stories about diversity and discrimination outside the classroom setting!

Gemeinsam mit den Partnerorganisationen Orient Express-Frauenberatungsstelle und Cap Ulysse in Bordeaux haben wir im Jänner 2022 unser neuestes Projekt gestartet. Es ist unser erstes Erasmus+ Projekt! Was wir dieses Jahr in Wien und Bordeaux vorhaben: Wir sammeln gemeinsam 10 Lebensgeschichten von und mit Teilnehmerinnen aus den Basisbildungskursen unserer Partnerinnen. Danach werden wir ihre Erzählungen in Comics und Texte gießen. Die Comics werden Ende des Jahres gedruckt und in einem Zine erscheinen.🤩 Mehr dazu in Kürze.
