ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne Association
On December 4th, 2013, ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne Association was founded. As a part of the international ROOTS & ROUTES network, the association supports international youth work, cultural diversity and cross-disciplinary art projects.
Young artists from all over Europe meet in Cologne to jointly develop a stage performance. Ballet meets breakdance, visuals meet violins, acrobatics meet arabic beats: ROOTS & ROUTES projects connect styles, artistic disciplines and communities, framed by the hybrid urban societies of a globalised world.
Aims of ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne Association include the advancement of international youth mobility and diversity conscious youth work. We support self-empowerment of young artists and media makers, their creative and professional development and networking on regional and international levels.
And the founding assembly on December 4th, 2013, the first board was elected, consisting of Andreas Kern (president), Salvatore Chianta (vice president), Aileen Wessely (treasurer), Johannes da-Costa, Sina Schindler and Sascha Düx.
