9 tips for parents and children in September in Freiburg – Freiburg

The summer holidays are coming to an end and so is the warm season. What awaits us in autumn and winter is written in the stars. Until then, we have put together some nice events for you.

Freiburg Youth Photo Award

All photography enthusiasts between the ages of six and 21 can enter this year’s Freiburg Youth Photo Prize until 18 September. Under the motto “Close to it”, the photo competition invites you to submit an image or a series of images of up to six images. The images must be “close”. This can be a moving story or an image that conveys a certain feeling, illustrates an attitude towards life or captures an intimate moment. It’s not about the perfect camera or the best Photoshop skills, it’s about the right moment. The pictures will then be assessed by a jury, and great prizes await the winners in the various age groups.

reading laboratories

For all reading and writing enthusiasts between the ages of 10 and 16, the reading laboratories will take place for the first time this year. Stories can be written and/or illustrated together with professional writers and illustrators. Getting to know Christian Duda, Lena Steffinger, Benjamin Tienti and Nele Palmtag will take place on September 4 at Literaturhaus Freiburg. Together with the “readers”, children and young people must spend four days researching the topic of madness. The reading laboratories take place as part of the well-known “Lirum Larum Reading Festival”, and the literary results from the reading laboratories can be presented at the finale on 16 October in Theater Freiburg.

Augustinian Museum: Exhibition “What is Colonialism”

Who can change the world? The answer is: all of us. No matter how big or small, everyone can contribute to making life on our planet a little bit better. Being informed, learning and breaking old thought patterns is the key. It is now clear to many people that we still benefit from the oppression and exploitation of colonialism in many areas of life. However, we are often unaware that to this day we continue to reproduce prejudices and behavioral patterns. “What does colonialism really mean and where do we encounter it in our everyday lives?” You can find out together with your children from the age of 8 on the family tour of the Augustiner Museum.
