The Center for Persecuted Arts as an extracurricular placeof learning

As an extracurricular place of learning, the Center for Persecuted Arts offers a diverse program for visits by school classes. The program combines several interfaces between museum, place of remembrance, and political education, as well as between the past, the present, and the future.

The permanent and special temporary exhibitions offer a variety of approaches for deepening and/or supplementing curricula in subjects such as German, art, politics, history, social sciences, and religion. Whether through guided tours, workshops, discussions, or the independent exploration of the exhibitions, the educational work is linked to the everyday lives of the students and actively involves them.

We are happy to assist teachers in preparing their classes for a visit to our museum and to customize the content of the visit. For example, you can book a one-hour tour that is designed as a dialogue, or a 1.5–3-hour tour that includes a hands-on component. It is also possible to accompany project days.

In addition, our program includes a variety of existing educational offers, primarily aimed at secondary schools from grade 8 and up. Please note that we require a lead time of at least 14 working days for the organization of school visits.

Free public transport to the LVR museums

With the LVR Mobility Fund, school classes, kindergartens and daycare centers in the LVR region can use free public transportation to the LVR museums and partner museums in the LVR Cultural Heritage Network. Open all-day schools (OGS) can now also apply.

Cultural Scouts Bergisches Land

Das Zentrum für verfolgte Künste nimmt am Projekt KulturScouts Bergisches Land teil.

The Center for Persecuted Arts participates in the project Cultural Scouts Bergisches Land. Cultural Scouts are trackers who explore their cultural region and, along the way, uncover espionage, direct films, and become curators, among other things: Neither museum, nor stage, nor historical walls are safe from them! The Cultural Scouts have been on the trail of culture in East Westphalia-Lippe since 2010—and here in the Bergisches Land, 61 school classes are now on a discovery tour for the 9th time in the 2023-24 school year.
