Panel discussion Sachsen im Dialog

demoSlam: The Slam for Young Dispute Culture in Saxony

An entertaining evening of discussion on current social issues – with an audience discussion and subsequent reception

Moderation: Cornelius Pollmer, Journalist & Author, Süddeutsche Zeitung

How can we talk about difficult topics? demoSlam offers an approach as a new format of communication and celebrates its premiere with its Saxon focus in the German Hygiene Museum. Six young people between 18 and 30 years from all over Saxony come together to engage with each other and with the audience, appreciatively and with humor.

demoSlam was developed by the cultural scientist Evgeniya Sayko at the Hertie Innovationskolleg, following formats such as Science- or Poetry-Slam, originally geared towards the German-Russian context. Prior to the demoSlam, the slammers deal with similarities and differences in their views in a three-day workshop. In pairs with controversial opinions, they will present their very personal stories and experiences as a result of this workshop on March 1.

Within the framework of Sachsen im Dialog, citizen journalists from all over Saxony also dealt with the transformation processes of the past 30 years. Their first works will be shown at the demoSlam in the form of an exhibition.

The project Sachsen im Dialog is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the federal program MITEINANDER REDEN and the support program Revolution and Democracy of the Saxon State Chancellery.
