We want you!

With this website „Neuschwerter“ the KuWeBe (“Cultural and Educational Institute of Schwerte”) provides a platform for both concerned citizens and refugees. In 2015 we started seven basic German language courses with 174 participants overall. Now we want to take the next step and help those people taking their roots in Germany.

On this Website we gather information about current events, which involve refugees or give the possibility to connect German and foreign people, especially through the means of culture. Furthermore we try to present an actual list of materials, which are useful to learn the German language, give guidance in German history and culture or support the integration process. You will find a list with helpful contacts for refugee issues, too.

The Website is available in German and English, an Arabic version is on its way. We cooperate with many local artists to provide a broad variety of cultural workshops and events, which help connecting people and give refugees a chance to participate in the cultural life of Schwerte. Most of those events are still in the planning and we are always happy for further suggestions or helpful requests.

Are you missing any information on this website? Or do you organize an event, which brings together old and new citizens of Schwerte? Do you know a good source for learning German? Please give us a hint. You can contact us…
