Action: Kulturrucksack

The perfect companion for your cultural adventure!

Discover the creative side of your city: go on a cultural adventure with the Kulturrucksack!

North Rhine-Westphalia has a particularly rich cultural landscape. This includes outstanding municipal but also independent theatres and many museums that invite people to engage with art and history, as well as concert halls, choirs, dance companies, literature houses, cultural festivals, youth centres and socio-cultural centres.

All these competences are to be used to make North Rhine-Westphalia, together with the municipalities, a land of culture for children and young people. To this end, there should be many exciting age-appropriate cultural offers that are not only accessible to all children and young people, but also affordable. (Source: kulturrucksack.nrw.de)

For the city of Bocholt, culture is also youth culture!

It is packed and ready: The cultural backpack for 2023. 21 activities and workshops from the fields of art, literature, film, drama, photography and music are on the programme, for which children and young people between the ages of 10 and 14 can register now.

The offers are spread over various locations, and this year, too, different educational and cultural institutions could be won as project partners.

"A lot of great, creative ideas ensure that the programme is full," says Claudia Borgers from the Kulturrucksack team of the city of Bocholt. "We are very pleased that the increased funding from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia means that all the projects submitted can be carried out for the young people," says Borgers. Around 20,000 euros are available for the campaign this year from funds provided by the state.

Getting young people excited about culture

"For the city of Bocholt, culture is also youth culture," says Head of Cultural Affairs Thomas Waschki. "With great events that have been set up, we also reach children and young people who are not otherwise interested in culture in the classical sense," says Waschki.
