KULTUR FÜR KINDER is not only linked to the cultural institutions, but also works closely with many of Vienna’s primary schools. These schools are part of the KULTURSCHULTÜTE project and we are pleased to report high levels of engagement amongst the teachers and school heads. The KULTURSCHULTÜTE project currently supports more than 3.500 primary school pupils in Vienna. Many of the schools have pupils from a number of different nationalities, teachers that work in challenging classroom situations, and limited access to cultural events. The KULTURSCHULTÜTE proves support to teachers to enable them to integrate art and culture into the daily curriculum.
KULTUR FÜR KINDER works as a mediator between the schools and cultural organisations to provide children with a cultural education and encourage their creativity. At the same time KULTUR FÜR KINDER programmes, organises and finances cultural projects, and puts on interactive workshops children and their teachers. All of our culture schools are run by highly engaged head teachers.
