Weltoffenes Berlin

Omar was a fellow of the program „Weltoffenes Berlin 2019“ of the Berlin Senate of Culture and Europe and is cooperating with „Werkstatt der Kulturen “.

The Senate Berlin Department for Culture and Europe has launched a program for economic and cultural freedom designed to help professionals working in art, media, and culture who intend or are being forced to leave their countries of origin become established in Berlin’s art and culture scene. In addition, this program also aims to raise Berlin’s profile as a tolerant and outward-looking city that gives people the freedom to engage in their cultural activity. Berlin - Germany 2019
