Who we are

Since 2020, Stiftung für Kultu­relle Weiter­bildung und Kultur­be­ratung (Foundation for Cultural Education and Cultural Consulting, SKWK) has been the umbrella organization for four initia­tives that advocate for more equal oppor­tu­nities in Berlin’s cultural landscape and actively shape social and cultural policy discourse on this topic.

The goal of our activities is to develop the cultural sector to reflect the existing diversity of our democratic society, in terms of its program, personnel, audience and accessibility.

The Berlin state-based foundation is supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion.
