District walk “Here we are allowed to be loud” – Johannstadt from Manizha’s point of view

Together with Dresdner Migrationsgeschichten we invite you to a discovery tour in Johannstadt.

The tour: On her tour, Manizha Walizai shows places that have made Dresden her home as well as places that remind her of her old life in Afghanistan. On the way, the trained physiotherapist from Kabul talks about her way back into the working world and explains which steps are necessary, among other things, for the recognition of certificates from the country of origin and how lengthy this path can be. As a passionate cook, she brings her audience closer to some Afghan (cooking) traditions as well as gives tips as an expert on how to prevent back pain. It is important for Manizha to clearly point out the critical situation of Afghan women and to tell about how the current situation is in the country since the Taliban took power.

Meeting point: The meeting point is in the Marwa El-Sherbini Park in front of the Dresden District Court in Lothringer Straße (stop Sachsenallee, at the street sign).

The route: Marwa El Sherbini Park – Johannstädter Kulturtreff e.V. – St-Joseph-Stift Hospital – end near Straßburger Platz. The route is barrier-free.

Manizha is a volunteer city guide at the Dresdner Migrationsgeschichten (an educational project of Ausländerrat Dresden e.V.), where analog & digital city tours are offered from the perspective of those affected by the topics of flight&Asylum, migration and racism. City guides with experience of flight and migration talk about their personal experiences and link stations of their own biography with places in the city.

Das Projekt Dresdner Nachbarschaften – Damals, Heute, Morgen / Zuhören, Erinnern und Gestalten wird gefördert durch das House of Resources Dresden+. Diese Maßnahme wird mitfinanziert mit Steuermitteln auf Grundlage des vom Sächsischen Landtag beschlossenen Haushaltes im Rahmen des Landesprogrammes Integrative Maßnahmen.
