Mission and Objectives: 

Educult: an idea pool for creative, cultural and artistic education
Cultural education
*is the major prerequisite for using the arts and science in the creation of a fulfilling personal and professional life.
*is decisive for the way we live and work
*creates the necessary precondition for active participation in society
*is a necessary basis for social diversity
The Arts, Culture and Education are Indispensable for the Further Development of a Humane Society.
Social changes need orientation. Cultural learning processes develop the full potential of the learner, boosting key competencies such as self-confidence, self-esteem and problem solving ability and thereby mobility, flexibility and social integrity.
Educult aims to open up these opportunities – together with its co-operation partners – to all members of our community.
