Our  Profile

Our unique profile consists of a combination of political and cultural youth education. Our seminars are structured to help youth develop the democratic self-confidence that they can use in their ever day lives. We help convey strategies of action for use in daily politics to which young people are open. From the start, it is our goal to help youth take part in the decision-making process within their political, social, and public surroundings.
Dance, theatre, film, photography, new media, and music are not just the means to these ends, but also help to provide opportunities for action. On top of this, everyone enjoys the chance to express themselves artistically and individually. 
It is especially helpful to be able to offer our challenging seminars amidst the secluded settings of our beautiful house on Lake Pohlesee. Along with the exclusive atmosphere, we offer a wide array of activities and excellent cuisine.

Departments

Democracy would not be possible without the participation of citizens in the social process. It is for this reason that the idea of participation is deeply rooted within the department of political education, and is mirrored in the seminars’ themes and methods. It is here that we discuss motives for participation, and where we practice the fundamental methods of co-determination.

We encourage a spirit of creativity and imagination. Cultural education at The wannseeFORUM provides the space for an intense, multifaceted debate within the arts; by doing, observing, and deliberating. Supported by experienced artists, young people attending our seminars experience the entire scope of creative work; from the initial concept to a final public presentation. By making music, appearing on stage, or working in the photo laboratory, participants learn fundamental artistic skills. Team spirit, mutual respect, and critical faculties are all put to the test.

This is no longer really new. Digital networking has long since come to dominate our daily routine, and has changed our world. New opportunities and risks have arisen with its design and in its use. A great number of our seminars and workshops aim to help navigate and shape the complexities of our digital media world. We endeavour to combine participants’ media experience with research, discussion, and practical media productions, whilst examining the explosive themes of our globalised network.

We organise regular seminars and youth congresses. Young people from all over the world come together in our house to develop and create artistic projects. In doing so, they experience the arts as a means of mutual enrichment and transcultural communication. Through the shared analysis of sociopolitical themes, participants profit from unaccustomed viewpoints, thus expanding their own horizons.
