Kulturszene 23

"Socioculture has long been achieving what many strive for: it is colourful and diverse, it has a local presence in everyday life and in the neighbourhood, it reaches young and old. Socioculture creates spaces for exchange and encounters - in short, social places that bring people of different skin colours, origins and religions together. Socioculture promotes participation, cohesion in diversity and revitalises our democracy."

With these words, Claudia Roth MdB, Minister of State for Culture and the Media, introduces the 23rd edition of the Funds magazine "Kulturszene" and emphasises the importance of socioculture for the cohesion of society in her welcoming address.

Kurt Eichler, Chairman of the Board of Fonds Soziokultur e. V., looks back on 50 years of socioculture and poses the question of what our cultural landscape would look like today if sociocultural centres had been founded instead of the first opera houses. The fact that today even the established cultural sector is adopting sociocultural methods and formats confirms the exemplary achievements of sociocultural institutions over the past 50 years.

Kulturszene also contains insights into socio-cultural practice based on selected project examples from 2022 as well as a presentation of the annual funding statistics of the Socio-Cultural Fund by Managing Director Mechthild Eickhoff.

The publication is freely available online and can be ordered free of charge as a print version (presse_at_fonds-soziokultur.de). It is written in German.
