Kulturrucksack NRW state programme
Making art and culture accessible to all children and young people is the declared aim of North Rhine-Westphalia's youth, culture and education policy. With the Kulturrucksack NRW state programme, the Ministry of Culture and Science NRW supports cities and municipalities to explicitly enable children and young people between the ages of 10 and 14 to participate in art and culture through a wide range of creative activities. The quality of the Kulturrucksack programmes and their sustainability are primarily due to the recurring collaboration with artists and cultural educators. The personal approach to the target group and the attractiveness of the programmes play a special role. Source: Arbeitsstelle Kulturelle Bildung NRW
