maiz jugend

Life carries weight!

A project on health and nutrition in the context of migration and social tensions.

Target Group
The primary target group of this project is migrant youth. But the project also addresses parents and families of young migrants as well as individuals working in the fields of education, social work and health.

University of Ignoramuses

To give more space to utopias and to the discussions surrounding the epistemic dimension of our praxis, maiz decided to establish the University of Ignoramuses. The starting point of our university is the realization that everyone is ignorant, as long as bodies of knowledge are possessed and knowledge continues to be produced without a critical reflection of the power dimension and the violent processes of legitimization and de-legitimization of knowledge and without implementing the resulting consequences in praxis.


maiz is actively engaged in producing its own media content. Through its publications, which delve into subjects such as migration, gender, the labor market, anti-racism, and education, maiz adopts a critical stance. “We deliberately embrace our authority as knowledge creators!” (Caixeta)
