From Leipzig with Love to Baghdad – Street Art for Nonviolence

On the last days of our Training of the project “Preventing Violent Extremism as a Root Cause of Migration”, we divided the group of Iraqi visitors into 3 teams, in order to give them specific practical experiences that suit their work in Iraq. On 29.03.2019, we made an excursion to the west of the city to discover the street-art scene in Plagwitz. We saw a very different, alternative side to the local culture, encompassing the canal construction, brick ruins and the graffiti along Gießerstraße. We held a live art performance beside the Karl-Heine Canal, featuring the slogan ‘From Leipzig with Love to Baghdad’, during which we had a lot of fun and creative experiences.
