Kulturschafft e. V. is a non-profit cultural association, based in Berlin, Germany. Founded in 2019 by a group of creatives (artists, curators, art-educators, cultural managers, musicians, performers and scholar). In addition to institutional support of art and culture, we attach particular importance to reaching out and involving people who have little access to cultural offerings. Therefore, we realize our projects, not only in the context of cultural institutions, but also in non-artistic spaces, such as schools, refugee houses or public urban areas. Since our foundation, we have implemented various art and educational activities in Germany and abroad, such as creative workshops, laboratories, interdisciplinary forums, exhibitions and networking events.
