“Freies Kulturprojekt” is a group of people from 9 different countries. Together we visited different cultural institutions and places in Stuttgart and learned several creative techniques.
The medium of art helped us to get together, learn from each others cultures and explore the city.
We hereby invite you to come and see the results of our explorations!
The title of the exhibition is “Jedes Gesicht hat eine Geschichte” (Every face has a story), and is opening to the public on 20. September, 5pm at Ausbildungscampus, Jägerstr. 14, Stuttgart, Germany.

Founded in 2010, the Afghanistan National Institute of Music is a special educational institution for several reasons. It teaches Afghan and Western Music, and it includes girls in their education. This is, in a country of war and conflict, where the practice of music and female education were banned for many years, a brave venture.
Zohra is one of the musical offsprings of the Institute – it’s Afghanistans first all-female orchestra, which has empowered many young women in getting an education, following traditions and rising up above the countries engrained gender stereotypes.
You can read about their story, listen to their music and follow their journey on their BEAUTIFULLY designed website http://www.zohra-music.org
The Afghanistan National Institute of Music has just won the ‘Polar Music Prize’, which is considered the ‘Nobel Prize’ for music and “celebrates the importance and power of music”. The other winner of this years prize is… Metallica.

He is happy and thankful to have arrived in Europe. He learns French with a strong ambition and can see a future for him here. He wants to study and find work. Work is important. His home-country: “Not safe, too much conflict. My brother got shot by the Taliban”. And yet he says “I miss Afghanistan”, with his hand held to his heart. He talks about the beauty of the mountains he grew up in, the smell of the food his mother cooks, the stories his father used to tell. The music. Dancing. Family. “You can leave your country – but your country never leaves you!” It is cultural identity and a feeling of home more than a country or a nation defined by borders. You can’t talk that away. And shouldn’t, ever, be deprived of that.
Pick you decade / country / mood.
Broaden you musical horizon, drift off on a journey through time and space … and dance! Because discovering new music is about one of the most beautiful sensations!
