Stay Home - VerVIRENde Geschichte

In this project German and Russian children will be working together on retelling Russian and German fairytales by adapting them to the current situation of the pandemic. During this process they will be sharing their experiences during the pandemic and a cultural exchange will take place. We are looking forward to it and are very curious about the outcome !

This project is focused on the situation for children in Germany and Russia and is made possible with friendly support from the funding organisation Stiftung Deutsch-Russischer Jugendaustausch and project execution organisation DRA e.V..
