Children and young people grow in culture

Cultural education as part of a comprehensive general education has a high priority in Beckum. Schools, youth welfare facilities, cultural organisations and institutions work together and coordinate their offers with the aim of enabling children and young people to participate in cultural and social life and to strengthen each and every individual in their personal development.

In this way, the city of Beckum is taking up an objective of the state government, which in turn supports the municipalities through state programmes such as "Culture and School", "Kulturstrolche" and "Kulturrucksack".

In 2016, the city of Beckum received an award for its "Municipal Overall Concept for Cultural Education" in the "Kinder- und Jugendkulturland NRW" competition.

Municipal overall concept for cultural education in Beckum

In 2013, the City of Beckum, together with the City of Ahlen, carried out a children's and youth culture development planning, the results of which are a guideline for the further development of children's and youth culture in Beckum. The City of Beckum works closely with the Filou e.V. cultural initiative.

  • Kulturstrolche

    Kulturstrolche explore Beckum

    Kulturstrolche don't miss out on anything, they explore the cultural institutions of their city and regularly go on cultural expeditions as a class.

    All primary schools in Beckum participate in this project from the 2nd to the 4th school year. During this time they deal with theatre and literature, music, history, art and dance and thus get to know cultural offers, but also their own artistic abilities.

    Creating encounters between children and culture is the goal of the "Kulturstrolche" project. The name of the project is the programme: regardless of the purse and the interests of the parents, the children discover the cultural institutions in their city from the second to the fourth year of school and gain an insight into as many cultural genres as possible. For each cultural visit, there is a sticker in the collection booklet. The children document their experiences in their own cultural story.

    "Kulturstrolche" was developed by the City of Münster and is protected as a trademark. The project is financially supported by the Kultursekretariat Gütersloh with funding from the Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, as well as organisationally as the overall project management.

    Cooperation partners of the Beckumer Kulturstrolche are:
    Kulturinitiative Filou e. V.
    Schule für Musik im Kreis Warendorf e. V.
    Stadtmuseum Beckum
    Alte Brennerei Schwake Ennigerloh e. V.

    In addition, the ambitious programme is also supported by sponsors.

  • JEKITS

    Every child instruments, dancing, singing

    JeKits is an educational programme in primary schools funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

    The Roncallischule Neubeckum is a JeKits school with a focus on singing and the Neue Grundschule Mitte and the Martinsschule are also JeKits schools with a focus on instruments.

    The School of Music in the District of Warendorf is an extracurricular cooperation partner for all JeKits schools in the District of Warendorf. It provides the teachers, procures the instruments and carries out all organisational tasks.

    The JeKits programme is run over 2 school years. In the first year, all classes receive a compulsory weekly lesson as part of the morning lessons as an introduction to making music or singing together. The focus is on joy and discovering, experiencing and creating together.

    In the second year, the knowledge is continued and deepened. For this purpose, the children receive two lessons outside of the morning classes. In the focus on instruments, each child also receives a free instrument on loan.

    Participation in the second year is voluntary and subject to a fee. Children whose parents receive social benefits can apply for cost coverage through the JeKits Foundation. The Beumer Foundation can also make a contribution to the parents' fees if necessary. Information about this can be obtained from the teachers.
