About us

pin – Organization for Participation, Integration and Networking was founded in December 2015 and is as non-profit organization. It’s goal is structural and political change in society as a whole. Within this process, sustainable integration measures and support for structurally disadvantaged groups, as well as individuals, especially displaced persons, are priority. The members of pin are committed to being a part of the local integration network and their aim is to encourage social, economic and cultural integration by applying sustainable strategies – such as promoting access to the labor market and education as well as raising public awareness.
read more
Through the use of the following measures, the aforementioned goals are to be achieved:
  • Promotion of dialogue on theoretical, practical and structural levels through rhetorical trainings, panel discussion and informational events
  • Thematization and visualisation of structural lacks as well as disadvantages and discrimination, especially in the educational sector and the labor market
  • Promotion of the integration of local actors through networking and the organization of members’ meetings as well as publicly accessible events
  • Preparation and provision of informative, pedagogical and scientific material
  • Trainings, workshops and counseling on the topics of displacement, migration and integration as well as awareness-raising and sensitization to discrimination and inequality

Participation

We understand participation to mean active co-determination and participation in decision-making processes. This includes the contribution of ideas as well as the participation in projects, events and dialogue. One of our objectives is to encourage the cooperation of individuals, associations, organizations and institutions. We thereby put focus on the attempt to continually speak to each other instead of for others.

Integration

For pin, integration, especially sustainable integration, stands for a dynamic, long-lasting and very differentiated process of growing together. This very process must be ensured by promoting the following foundational principles:
  • multidimensional communication
  • solidarity and understanding for the topics around displacement and migration, as well as according and relevant relationships
  • “participate and let participate”
  • integration in the educational sector and labor market
  • equal opportunities and support through information and counseling

Networking

We take continuous and forward-looking participation, integration measures and networking as essential parts of sustainable structural change in society as a whole. Building a network, cooperating with organisations as well as individuals and consulting and involving people is one of pin's main priorities. With our projects we aim to produce long-lasting effects and achieve effective problem-solving approaches through forward-looking thinking and action. We are convinced that social and structural changes cannot be achieved overnight, but through continuous work.

Projects

Through your support, the implementation of our projects is enabled. Below you will find all the information on our ongoing projects. If you are interested in supporting us through voluntary contributions and cooperation, please contact us. Through donations the development and continuation of our projects are secured. We are always pleased to hear from you!

VOGUING - Against Exclusion and Intolerance

Together we dance and create a space without exclusion and intolerance!

The dance project “Voguing - Against Exclusion and Intolerance” is enabled through the cooperation of IMPROPER WALLS, Karyin Cheng, GB*10 and pin. The project starts with an informational kickoff-event at the IMPROPER WALLS gallery on the 30th of September 2016. Subsequently a dance group, consisting of members of the cooperation partners and persons with experiences of displacement, will attend a course for two semesters (4.10.2016 - 15.06.2017) and learn how to “vogue” from dancer and choreographer Karin Cheng in the facilities of the GB*10. To conclude the project, IMPROPER WALLS and pin will host a “Finissage” to get together, reflect, dance and perform for friends and families.

Goals of this project are:

  • To create a space without exclusion and intolerance
  • To strengthen own and collective identities
  • To encourage trust and feelings of security
  • To encourage moments, where body and mind are the focus outside of daily routines, responsibilities or obligations as well as worries or social burden
  • To dance!
