Cultural Education

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.

Creative Competition "Suicide Is No Solution!"

19.07.2017, Berlin | Suicide is a topic that tends to be hushed up in public, and those who are not directly affected generally avoid dealing with it, for understandable reasons. The project “Suicide Is No Solution!” by the Crisis Hotline Berlin is a competition that encourages young people to engage with the difficult topics surrounding adolescence and suicide. In August 2017, young people could submit poems, photographs, images, films or songs and thus come up with creative “prevention messages” for themselves and their peers. The winners of this year’s Creative Competition will be presented at ZOO PALAST on October 17, 2017.

Al-Farabi Music Academy Is Launched in Spandau

02.01.2017, Berlin | A carefree and happy childhood is not something that all children can take for granted. Having fled war and violence, many children and teenagers now living in Germany need to learn a new language, make new friends, and develop trust in a culture they are not familiar with. While the individual life situations of these young people may vary, “there is one thing we all understand – the language of music,” says the world-renowned pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim who has received many awards for his social activities. Under his patronage and under the direction of the internationally known musicians Felix Krieger and Saleem Ashkar, refugee children and teenagers team up with local youth to form a youth symphony orchestra at the recently founded Al-Farabi Music Academy in Berlin.

MitMachMusik - One year music lessons for refugees

21.12.2016, Berlin | Since January 2016, the association MitMachMusik has offered music lessons at several collective accommodation centers for refugees in Berlin and Potsdam. Twice a week, professional musicians visit the centers to make music with refugee children and teenagers: small children can participate in singing and dancing groups, while older children and teenagers can play on borrowed instruments. Especially talented children and teenagers can use the instruments for independent practice; they also receive individual lessons once a week in addition to the ensembles. Local children from the neighborhood are also invited to participate in the ensembles and lessons.

Workshops for Young Refugees

19.10.2016, Berlin | Last year, many unaccompanied refugee minors arrived in Germany. These young people, mostly boys, are in a psychologically sensitive state: their initial residence status is uncertain and they have only limited opportunities for employment during the long waiting period. The Ernst Schering Foundation, together with Jugendwohnen Kladow, an initiative sponsored by the Steglitz community center, has launched a project to provide these boys with more self-confidence and an early chance at integration through music and art courses. On October 25–28, 2016, it will host a comics workshop for refugee minors from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Gambia, and other countries.

Multaka - The Museum as Meeting Point

10.12.2015, Berlin | The Museum of Islamic Art, a division of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, has initiated a project to train 19 refugees from Syria and Iraq as museum guides who are able to conduct tours of the Pergamon Museum, the Bode Museum, and the German Historical Museum in their native languages. The title of the project says it all: in Arabic, “multaka” means “meeting point” and stands for the exchange of different cultural and historical experiences; the project, however, is also about the commonalities between Germany, Syria, and Iraq.
