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 three 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 Europe.
Diversity Arts Culture
Diversity Arts Culture promotes diversity by advising cultural institutions and administration, qualifies cultural workers, empowers cultural workers affected by discrimination and commissions data collection on equality and equal access.
Institut für Kulturelle Teilhabeforschung (IKTf)
The IKTf (Institute for Research on Cultural Participation) provides research data and reports on models by which cultural institutions, cultural policy and administration can develop strategies for cultural participation.
The Kulturelle Bildung Department (Department of Arts Education) consists of the Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung (Berlin Project Fund Arts Education), the Berliner Projektfons Urbane Praxis (Berlin Project Fund for Urban Practice), event and qualification programs, and the digital community platform Kubinaut. The focus is on promoting and networking projects in which children, youth and young adults actively participate.
