The Ernst Schering Foundation seeks to contribute to the promotion of the cultural and artistic education of children and young people.
To this end, the Ernst Schering Foundation supports innovative projects and programs that provide children and young people with an age-appropriate approach to art and enable them to experience and understand art with all their senses. Whether it is dance, theater, painting or music: Bringing young people in contact with artists and cultural institutions increases their interest in art and culture. They receive important stimuli for their personal development and are encouraged to draw on their creative potential and to express their ideas, fantasies and points of view in their own artistic way.
With these programs, the Foundation also aims to compensate for the well-known deficits in education by offering integrative programs for children and young people from socially educationally disadvantaged families.

Empty Nest at the DT's Kinderzimmer
At Night in the Children’s Room
07.03.2012, Berlin | Since October 2011, the Deutsche Theater (DT) boasts of a new, rather unconventional venue: the Children’s Room. Following a 10-day fall camp, where 80 teenagers had discussed the question, “What Do We Need?,” it is now up to students at a DT partner school to move into the green container in front of the Deutsche Theater and fill the space with instruments and imagination. Under the tutelage of two artists, the 8th-graders will develop a play that will deal with the dark sides of young people’s lives. In a very literal sense: When night falls in the Children’s Room, nothing is like it is during the day.

Expert Forum on Open Education Programs
|25.01.2011, Berlin | What can be accomplished by out-of-school courses and educational programs that are open, without application, to children and youth? Where children from a variety of backgrounds can come and participate as they please? How is it actually possible to structure and plan such programs and courses? In light of the current public and political debates about the effectiveness of education, providers of open education programs put their work up for discussion: During an expert forum entitled “Art is open: Arts and cultural education programs in the contexts of emancipation, social work, and art education,” the Jugend im Museum e.V. association and the Berlinische Galerie – State Museum of Modern Art, Photography, and Architecture will join initiators and promoters of arts and culture education for children and youth, artists, museum staff, teachers, and educators to discuss the individual and emancipatory qualities of open arts and cultural programs.||

Children’s and Youth Theater Project of the Theater o.N. | Zinnober
|24.08.2010, Berlin | How do we get children and youths who are not exposed to the arts in their family environment excited about theater, music or art? In close cooperation with teachers in Hellersdorf, the Theater o.N. | Zinnober under the direction of Ania Michaelis gets the very youngest involved in developing a play and thus caught up in creating and experiencing art. Since March 2010, an actress, a director, a musician, and a costume designer of the Theater o.N. have worked with sixteen first, second, and third graders at the Grundschule am Schleipfuhl, an elementary school in Berlin-Hellersdorf. For six months, the artists and children dreamt, romped and argued, built masks and rehearsed.|
