Talaki is a DIS community project initiated by DIS teachers, students and parents to support the integration of refugees. The Arabic word Talaki means 'Come Together'. The aim is to create a friendly and welcoming environment for local refugee families to get to know the international community at DIS through joint activities, e.g. play music together, games, sports and many more. The DIS Talaki team organizes events at school and outside of DIS such as the Benefit Concert “Talaki Rocks” at the Dresden Musikhochschule or the charity run “Talaki Runs!” in the Waldpark.
Every Christmas we are collecting toys and clothes for the Dresden Refugee Center.
The TALAKI project was nominated for the "Sächsischer Bürgerpreis" (Saxon Citizen Award) in the category "Engagement in der Schule für Demokratie und Toleranz" (School's commitment to democracy and tolerance) in 2017.
