Café KULTURA will be an ideal place to drink coffee, taste good food from here and elsewhere and to discover the wealth of all the cultures present in Strasbourg, through festive events and workshops for both children and adults. It will also be a workplace for professional integration of migrants.
…And all of this in a magnificent and tranquil garden in the Robertsau, close to the European institutions!
Café Kultura will be organized around three axes:
1. As a café
Probably the best way to bring all of our cultures together is around the table! What better way to get together than by sharing little specialties from the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Italy or Turkey, made using local and seasonal produce?
Our cosy venue will be perfect for reading the paper while drinking your morning coffee before heading to work or for a lunch break with colleagues. And why not enjoy a brunch with family or friends in our beautiful garden?
2. Events and entertainment focused around cultural diversity
Haven’t you ever wanted to learn how to make tiramisu with un italiano vero, to practice yoga with a genuine yogi , or to introduce yourself to Mongolian singing? Café Kultura will be a place where you will be able to do all of these things and more! We will offer creative, sportive and musical workshops, concerts, small exhibitions for adults and children or cine-debates on current issues.
3. A solidarity action:
We live in the European capital and every year we have the chance to welcome newcomers to Strasbourg from many different countries. As a venue for a professional integration, with a focus on employability of migrants, our café will enable women and men looking for employment to integrate quickly into the local labour market.
Who is behind this project?
Hana is Czech. When she moved to Strasbourg for family reasons, she took French lessons, where she met other foreigners and realized their difficulties in integrating into the life and community of the city. Her project has matured rapidly, because Hana is a woman of action and she has decided to put her skills, experiences and boundless energy to use, for the benefit of the social and cultural life of Strasbourg. When Hana’s idealism was coupled with the energies of several friends which she met from different countries, the concept of Café Kultura was born!
Together they founded an NGO with a specific goal: to create a solidarity café, an open meeting place for all which, at the same time, will serve as a workplace facilitating integration and employment opportunity for migrants. A venue that enable people coming from all countries to meet, share, exchange, learn and move forward together.
