Fund to Strengthen Citizen Involvement in the Culture of the New German Länder

Heritage and Education

Presenting art and culture to new audiences is a central focus of the programmes at the Federal Cultural Foundation. The Programme to Strengthen Educational Activities in Museums, which will run from 2016 to 2020, aims to encourage processes of change within museums which have the potential of appealing to younger people. The model programme Agents for Creative Schools initiates collaboration between cultural institutions, fine artists and schools. Large-scale projects like An Instrument for Every Child and the New Music Network advanced important developments in the field of music education. Presently the Foundation is funding the Studio musikFabrik in Cologne – a model project aimed at promoting talented young musicians in the field of New Music. In addition to funding contemporary art and cultural projects, the Foundation is also committed to cultivating our cultural heritage and addressing those challenges which come with preserving and presenting cultural heritage. This is the goal of programmes like the Dance Heritage Fund, KUR Programme to Preserve and Restore Mobile Cultural Assets, as well as numerous projects on the culture of remembrance. Since 2002 the New Länder Fund supports culturally-committed citizen interest groups on a local and regional level in East Germany. The Federal Cultural Foundation is currently funding a project to establish a digital archive of knowledge and the arts of the Sinti and Roma in Europe.
