The modular training for guides of the postcolonial city tours through Bremen is expected to take place annually.


During the training, the multipliers expand their knowledge on the topics of postcolonialism, racism and memory work. All participants are invited to question their own assumptions and reflect on their own perspectives.


Furthermore, pedagogical skills in mediation work are addressed: How do I stand in front of a group? How do I deal with racist remarks from the group? What is the Beutelsbach Consensus? How do I make a guided tour as interactive as possible?

…  Anyone between the ages of 14-30


… who are interested in the topics of colonialism and racism and


… who will lead a postcolonial tour in tandem at least twice after the training.

You will learn more about the topics of colonialism, postcolonialism, racism and memory work. 


… You will become a multiplier yourself and learn how to communicate important social issues to others.


… You will receive a certificate for your participation in the training.


… If required, we will be happy to issue you with a certificate of your voluntary commitment.


… For each postcolonial tour you take, you will receive an expense allowance in the form of a volunteer flat rate.


… Students can often have their voluntary work recognised. We are happy to support you in getting your work recognised.


… In consultation with teachers, students can use their volunteer work for subject papers or reports. We are happy to support you in consultation with your teacher.

Workshop: Listening – decolonial perspectives in global learning l June 21, 2023 l 4-7 p.m. (online)


Speakers: Hanna Krügener and Yili Rojas (Südblicke Berlin)


The inclusion of various perspectives, especially from the Global South, is fundamental in educational work. But how does this happen and how are these perspectives perceived? Listening and looking at your own, mostly Eurocentric, perception of the world are the focus of the workshop with speakers from Südblicke Berlin.


The workshop is about rethinking existing approaches and methods of global learning, recognizing and responding to the solidarity that many committed people from the Global South show us, being able to reflect on the privileges we inherited from the colonial era in order to to act and teach in a power-critical manner. Together we want to get to know and develop steps for the implementation of decolonial approaches in our educational work.

Museum tour on provenance research and collections from the colonial context l October 04th 2023 I  15:00-17:00 h l Übersee-Museum Bremen


Everyone is talking about ‚provenance research‘, especially when it comes to museum pieces that – as it is often called – come from a colonial context. But what exactly is provenance research? What does the work of a provenance researcher look like? And what does „colonial context“ mean? In this one-hour tour of the museum’s exhibitions, provenance researcher Bettina von Briskorn shows the museum’s connections to colonialism and reports on her work.
