Velkommen til CAK - Afrikansk kulturinstitutt

Afrikansk kulturinstitutt, CAK, er et miniatyr-Afrika i Oslo, og det har i over 40 år vært et fargerikt innslag i det norske kulturelle landskapet. Kunnskapen og kompetansen vi bygger opp i vår kulturformidling, skal medvirke til forståelse av mangfoldet av kulturelt innhold og uttrykk i verden og berikelse ved det.

CAK øker antall uvante situasjoner brukerne våre utsettes for, for eksempel ved å lære en dans eller tolke en sang på et annet språk enn deres eget, og dermed styrke deres evne til å oppfatte og skjønne uvante trekk i en annen kultur og hjelpe dem overvinne en tendens til etnosentrisme. Vi stimulerer brukerne våre til å oppdage, lytte og lære å kjenne, bli forbauset, prøve ut samt delta på en aktiv og engasjert måte i en åpen interkulturell dialog! Les mer om oss her.

African Cultural Institute, CAK, is a miniature Africa in Oslo, and for over 40 years it has been a colorful feature of the Norwegian cultural landscape.

The skills that we build in our cultural promotion, prepare for the recognition of cultural diversity, its content, as well as cultural sensitivities and expressions by the multiplication of situations to which our users are exposed, for example, by the interpretation of ´a dance or a song by the way, in a language other than his own and which will forge the ability of our users to take a step back from the implicitities of another culture and which helps them to break with a tendency ethnocentric. By giving the user the habit of discovering, marveling, practicing, listening and knowing as well as participating in an active and committed way in his openness to intercultural dialogue!
