Datteltäter

Hello everyone!

Who we are

Datteltäter is a team of diverse, incredibly good-looking, multi-religious, multi-ethnic creatives who strive to change the mainstream narratives surrounding Muslim and migrant communities. In short, we’re YouTubers, a production company, workshop leaders, stage acts and most recently we founded a non-profit association.

What we do

We foster dialogue through videos, workshops, and more. Each week, we release a new video covering an idea or topic related to the Muslim community. We  aim to build bridges between the Muslim community and others by talking about how we perceive life as young Muslims in Germany.  

How we do it

Through humor. Humor is a universal icebreaker and enables our viewers to approach uncomfortable or complex topics and issues with ease.   

Why we do it

Because we had something to say, and saw that there was a gap in the media space when it came to Muslim voices. We wanted to tell our own stories, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
