A new interest in cultural education? Observations from Germany


CultureCultural education must have an impact on each stage of a person's life and contribute to more educational equality. This was announced by Federal Minister of Education Johanna Wanka in a keynote speech on cultural education in June 2014 at the "Culture educates" dialogue forum in Berlin. The key points of such a concept are also included in the current coalition agreement which continuously result in new initiatives on a federal and state level.  The observable new public interest in cultural education provides chances to re-emphasise a core area of adult education.
