Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP)

Arts and Education Forum

We are launching a new cultural programme featuring special activities designed to arouse curiosity about the cultures of the world. The under-18 generation is expressly invited to creatively participate in the Open House, but adults will also have the opportunity to get to the bottom of cultural questions. Thanks to new partnerships, HKW is also reaching out to new target groups in Berlin. The New York programme marks the beginning. Each of us carries in our mind a picture of the Big Apple – but how does this change when we open ourselves to images, music, people and ideas from this great metropolis? And what can in turn be learned about Berlin?

The CUP works with artists and experts to develop educational projects on urban space. "To change a city, you must first learn to see it" is their motto. Members of this community arts project from Brooklyn will introduce their work and their plans for Berlin.
