Podewil Center for Contemporary Arts
In 2004 the Museum Pedagogical Service for Berlin (MD Berlin) moved into the Podewils Palace on the initiative of Berlin’s Culture Senate. This was the first step in preparation for a planned fusion with the BKV. The merger between BKV and MD Berlin created the new association Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, which started work here in the Podewils Palace on 1.9.2006.
Kulturprojekte Berlin realises projects as a non-profit organisation affiliated with the Berlin region for the promotion, networking and mediation of culture. The association designs and initiates complex cultural schemes and initiatives for the city of Berlin, funds venues and festivals and offers services to Berlin’s museums and other cultural institutions. We are currently working on a coordination and discussion platform, which aims to network actors, initiatives and projects across Berlin in the field of cultural education. A key instrument for this platform will be the Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung (Berlin Project Fund for cultural education). The initiation and development of programmes in the context of long-term cooperation between Berlin’s educational and culture institutions is a central pillar in the field of cultural education.
