The Kultur & Art Initiative develop and implement art and culture projects. Kultur & Art Initiative has been established 2002 and is an intercultural and intergenerational non-profit association with members from different nations, age groups and with different careers who have got work experiences in media production, education and media education for many years.
Kultur und Art Initiative e.V. staff comes from different educational backgrounds and fields of study, such as: Arts, Communication, Human Rights and Educational Sciences, Psychology, etc. All of them, during the year, take part in several training courses, at local and european level, based on non-formal education to improve their skills and competences as mentors and facilitators. Kultur und Art Initiative e.V. facilitators and trainers are involved also in the events of the international and national projects where participants are also adults and expert in education.
Our aim is to produce projects with people from different origins. Our concept is based on contents of social and intercultural integration. We want to work against the passive culture consumption with active culture work. That is why we offer participants of our events creative and project-orientated opportunities. We also offer young people media educational workshops and international youth exchanges. In cooperation and in context of the EU-Program Youth in action we arrange youth encounters several times a year.
The focus is laid on youth from different countries building up a project together, and them to discuss different topics and to get to know about the other cultures, countries and their background. In the centre of the projects efforts there is the aim to bring life, culture and discussions closer to the youth.
The Kultur & Art Initiative develop and implement art and culture projects in this region and abroad. We cooperate with the culture team of City of Detmold, Federal Foreign Office, Filmuniversität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf, the Hochschule für Musik Detmold, radios and television and some local associations.
This association provide offers for extracurricular youth work, including media educational advice, workshops, performances, support doing projects and getting ideas. The offers are at no charge and are suitable for everyone who is interested.
Our office is in Detmold, by the culture factory Hangar 21.
