Festival Belluard Bollwerk International


Abendschule Import


Literature, art, languages, politics, music or handicrafts – experts that have found refuge in Switzerland share their knowledge.

In their new lives, refugees rarely have the opportunity to apply the skills they used in their previous occupations and everyday life. This migrated know-how is made available here. The Abendschule Import team develops an appropriate format in collaboration with each teacher. Two courses take place at the same time each evening. They are followed by a get-together around a drink, which offers the opportunity to connect with the teachers and the other participants.

The project is back at the Belluard Festival after spending a year at the Espace culturel Le Nouveau Monde. The program is a mix of new courses and a best-off of classes offered during the past year.
