Mir wëllen iech ons Heemecht weisen is a grassroots NGO that was founded in 2015 when a large number of refugees suddenly arrived in Luxembourg. Initially a volunteer-led initiative, a program of intercultural activities quickly emerged to support refugees’ cultural integration and to create opportunities to meet locals. In our experience, we’ve found that cultural workshops and artistic expression are excellent vehicles to facilitate verbal and non-verbal communication amongst different communities.
Ever since, we’ve collaborated with artists, musicians, designers and other cultural actors. We are co-financed by the Ministry of Culture, foundations, and private donations.
