“Culture – Education – Participation. Art & Pedagogy in Early Childhood” is the title of a new type of degree program that the Fliedner University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf launched in the winter semester 2020 with the participation of the DFF. Alongside other cultural institutions, the DFF helps shape the course with its high level of expertise in early childhood cultural education. This program focuses on cultural education for and with younger children. The students of the part-time course qualify for leading and conceptual activities in art and cultural education, for example in museums, daycare centers, theaters and foundations. They learn to mediate in the field of tension between culture, education and participation. Four artistic-pedagogical modules are offered as part of the program, which take place directly in the partner cultural institutions. At the DFF – Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, the first module was offered in spring 2021.
Other partners of the project include the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and the Bundesakademie für Kulturelle Bildung Wolfenbüttel. The development of the program is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
