Growing Cultural Talents!

Discover, shape, participate: Next Generation is our programme for the youngest generation. This platform for youth and its talents ensures a playful approach to culture and creativity. We are convinced: only through experiences that encourage and engage children personally can they develop into the critical, active members of society which the future demands.

Summer Workshop Week

Last year was tough enough: we open the windows and let some fresh air into your thoughts! The Summer Workshop Week is all about your strengths, opinions and (pandemic-conform) encounters with peers in exciting formats involving music and media.

Family Day: August 8

In keeping with festival tradition, 2021 brings a family day for everyone: the matinee concert of the German-French Junior Academy features music ranging from Paul Hindemith and Georges Bizet to the Game of Thrones theme; the afternoon brings intergalactic encounters.

What do young adults think of Europe? Do they see it only as borderless travel – or their future as well? Students from Berlin’s secondary schools have dedicated themselves to this question in discussions, writing and poetry. Wonderful actors read the most interesting results.
