Project Title

Was bedeutet Heimat für dich?

“Was bedeutet Heimat für dich?“ was an oral history project conducted at the socio-cultural center of Kulturladen Huchting in Bremen. Its main goal was to explore how the sense of belong- ing to a place (described by the word “Heimat“ in the German language and by the word “topos“ in Greek) is interpreted by persons of different cultural backgrounds. In this context, people with German, Iranian, Syrian, Polish, and Greek origins gave their unique answers to the question “What does ‘Home’ mean to you?”.

The development and implementation of the project in- volved bibliographical and online research and an introduction to interview techniques. This last included a look at the ap- proach to the topic and to interviewees, recording via portable devices, and editing digital sound files.

The outcome of this process was presented in a 4 minute audio-collage in the context of “2792 km Athens – Bremen: New Music and Creativity from Greece“ an event held in the Kulturzentrum Lagerhaus that was also part of START.
