What do we want to achieve?
With our projects and initiatives, we aim to help people overcome reservations about art and music, generate their enthusiasm and appreciation for culture and, together with our partners in culture, foster the creativity and confidence of children and young people.
How are we implementing that?
- Together with renowned partners such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, we develop innovative, long-term structures for reaching out to children and young people. For instance, we support the orchestra’s Educational Programme.
- We create a greater awareness for cultural learning through initiatives such as Children to Olympus!
- We bring culture to people: Launched in 2013, Operndolmuş is our third project aimed at motivating people to experience culture.
- We help cultural institutions develop educational programs. For instance, we are the education partner of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
