Oyoun Back


7 Apr 2022

As a QTIBIPOC and Muslim femme led cultural organisation in Berlin, Oyoun find themselves not only at the intersection of art and social change but also deeply embedded in the marginalised communities of Berlin. The Oyoun team has had experience in hosting various fellows on short- and mid-term residencies since 2020. Previously artists, activists, social entrepreneurs and researchers joined from Syria, Jordan, Cuba, Sudan, Cameroon and Tunisia as artists-in-residence. To support artists fleeing from Ukraine,  but also those, facing structural discrimination in their displacement, Berlin-based organisation will offer artistic and cultural residency-like formats for creatives forced into exile due to the war. Especially bipoc or qtibipoc artists such as Afghans who only recently fled to Ukraine. Up to a half-year fellowship along with stipend, psychosocial support, healthcare, legal support and language courses will be provided for culture workers who need to flee for the second time.
