For more than 10 years, the IAS and the Academy of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart have been collaborating to host the Weingartener Afrikagespräche.

Schee, dass du doo bist
The Project "Schee dass du doo bist" ("We're happy you're here") is a collaboration with various actors of the city of Bayreuth such as the social associations Bayreuth ohne Gewalt e.V., Schoko e.V. and the Partnerschaft für Demokratie Bayreuth consisting of multiple individual projects. The core objective of the projects is to enhance knowledge about racism and other forms of discrimination, sensitize individuals, and empower all the efforts of the actors involved in order to create spaces for mindfulness and openness.
