Cooperations and Networks

Netzwerk Frühkindliche Kulturelle Bildung

Cultural education enriches the development of very young children - it should therefore be a natural part of everyday life. The Netzwerk Frühkindliche Kulturelle Bildung brings together people from a wide range of disciplines throughout Germany who are working together to strengthen and further develop cultural education in early childhood. Initiated by three foundations and 20 experts, the Netzwerk Frühkindliche Kulturelle Bildung is now funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. It is supported by the Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung.

All interested people and institutions are welcome to join the Netzwerk Frühkindliche Kulturelle Bildung. The Stiftung KUNSTFORUM der Berliner Volksbank gGmbH also feels connected to the goals and values of the Netzwerk Frühkindliche Kulturelle Bildung. That is why it is actively involved in the network and supports it by choie.


The Stiftung KUNSTFORUM der Berliner Volksbank gGmbH is committed to a cosmopolitan, fair and solidary society. It therefore supports the alliance DIE VIELEN and has signed the Berlin Declaration of DIE VIELEN.

Art creates space to change the world
Cultural institutions and those active in art and culture have joined forces regionally or city-wide in declarations and have combined to form a transnational network. The declarations of DIE VIELEN formulate a clear stance towards group-related enmity, right-wing extremism and attacks on artistic freedom. The Berlin Declaration of DIE VIELEN, which was developed and coordinated by a diverse group of activists from the cultural landscape, serves as the basic text for each new declaration.
“Our society is a plural assembly. Many different interests collide and are often found in between. Democracy has to be renegotiated every day - but always under one condition: It's about everyone, about each and every one of us as the essence of the many possibilities! "
From the Berlin Declaration of DIE VIELEN.
Solidarity instead of privileges. It's about everyone. The art remains free!
