JUGEND- & KULTURPROJEKT E.V.
Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. (JKPeV) was founded in 2004 in Dresden and is dedicated to Education, Art and Culture. We organise international, regional and local projects that have a social impact, promote diversity and inclusion, and foster active participation and civic engagement. Through educational activities, we strive to develop young people and adults’ soft and professional skills, to stimulate entrepreneurial initiative and to boost their creativity by means of non-formal learning methods. JKPeV's art and cultural events involve international and local emerging and established artists.
Our priority is to include, involve and integrate young people with fewer opportunities, migrants and refugees through cross-cultural exchange, art workshops and non-formal learning activities.
We organise international Projects, Events and Trainings for young people and adults on site and abroad with a focus on assisting the cultural enrichment of the city of Dresden and the Free State of Saxony while also promoting the cultural diversity of the European Union. Inviting foreign educators and including foreign participants to our on-site projects kindles an intercultural dialogue in the heart of an already highly acclaimed artistic hub -Dresden- while on the other hand, including local citizens in our abroad events brings back to the city a fresh outlook to familiar problems and a sense of belonging to a greater group – the European.
Addressing our aim, we focus on breeding international, cross- sectoral and interdisciplinary cooperation in Dresden and the EU by offering a number of Training sessions and Seminars in Youth Work, Entrepreneurship and Digital Media annually with international participants and educators. Our Public Events offer the possibility for all citizens of the city wherein they take place to experience first-hand the intellectual and artistic approaches of individuals from other countries, facilitating thus the international dialogue on common issues.
Aside from Training sessions and Seminars, JKPeV also offers the opportunity to young adults to immerse themselves in this cultural and educational dialogue further by offering Internship and Volunteering possibilities in our organisation. Working at the hub of such cultural activity allows participants –be they local or foreign- to better understand the possibilities, opportunities and cultural diversity present within the European Union. Jugend- & Kulturprojekt has organised and implemented international projects since 2007. All the projects we have implemented are based on non-formal learning methods and promote values such as democracy, human rights, solidarity, cultural diversity,
