AfroGerman week: Artist Naomi Bendt teaches self-consciousness trough art

Berlin Artist Naomi Bendt works with children for the organisation “Interkulturelles Netzwerk Jugend Berlin – Kreuzberg”. The project was sponsored by the German social lottery Aktion Mensch.

In the short promo video Bendt says: Aktion Mensch means self-consciousness to me. My goal is that the children become more aware of themselves. Self-consciousness is also important if, like me, you have a different cultural background. If you have healthy self-consciousness you wont be influenced that easily. It means that you are of proud of your heritage and know who you are.
