CUCULA is a workshop, association, and a platform for cross-cultural exchange and experimental vocational training for young refugees. In the workshop, up to eight young refugees continuously learn the basics of craft and design. Supported by the adjacent educational program, that includes individual counselling, administrative support (searching for flats or filling out paperwork), and legal advice.
The CUCULA program consists of two parts:
CUCULA – REFUGEES COMPANY: a workshop where the fundamentals of craftsmanship are taught in an experimental working environment, high-quality design objects are created, built and then sold.
CUCULA – EDUCATION: where participants are introduced to German for professional purposes and courses relevant for vocational training and pursuing a career. Such as mathematics, geometry, organisational processes and work-related planning.
