Quality association "Culture empowers!"

The quality association "Culture empowers!" (Kultur macht stark) is a joint project of the Academy of Arts Education and the Bundesakademie für Kulturelle Bildung Wolfenbüttel. It provides pedagogic support to the national development programme “Kultur macht stark. Bündnisse für Bildung” (Culture empowers! Alliances for education).


The Federal Ministry for Education and Research sponsors this programme to promote extracurricular arts education programmes for educationally alienated children and young people.

The quality association arranges nationwide practical workshops and regional conferences on specific topics and issues of arts education and youth work. Events are directed at professionals and multipliers of arts education and youth work.

The association’s work is practical, cooperative and decentralised; its activities are rolled out all over Germany. The contents of the qualification programmes are oriented towards the concepts and interests of the alliances for education. The primary goal of the quality association is to improve education opportunities of underprivileged children and young people through successful arts education in a non-formal sector.
