Creative offers

Creative offers

In Hilden, there is not only a lot to see, but also becoming creative yourself is possible for every age group. In addition, creative offerings also promote personal development and well-being.

  • Children and Youth Art School KuKuK

    In the courses of the children and youth art school KuKuK not only creativity should be promoted. In addition to learning, "having fun together" should always be a part of the program. Information about the offers of the children's and youth art school KuKuK can be obtained from the cultural office of the city of Hilden by phone 02103-5903 or by mail kukuk@hilden.de.

  • Wilhelm Fabry Sponsorship Award 2023

    For many years, the city of Hilden has awarded the Wilhelm Fabry Promotion Prize. The prize of 4,000 euros is an award to young talents with which the city of Hilden promotes artistic careers and professions, limited to North Rhine-Westphalia. The jury consists of at least 2 expert jurors as well as members of the Committee for Culture and Local Heritage and employees of the Department of Culture of the City of Hilden.

    In 2023, the award will be made in the areas of "Poetry as a Form of Expression in Poetry Slam Texts" and "Short Stories."

  • Kulturrucksack NRW

    Cultural education can make a significant contribution to the personal development of young people. However, the prerequisite is to open the door to art and culture for all children and young people as early and as widely as possible.

    North Rhine-Westphalia has a particularly rich cultural landscape. This includes outstanding municipal theaters, but also independent theaters 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 centers and sociocultural centers. All these competencies are to be used to make North Rhine-Westphalia a "children's and youth culture state" together with the municipalities. To this end, there should be many exciting age-appropriate cultural offerings that are not only accessible to all children and young people, but also affordable.

    For this reason, the state has launched a state program together with the municipalities and cultural institutions: the Kulturrucksack Nordrhein-Westfalen. The Ministry of Culture provides around 3 million euros annually for this purpose. The aim of the statewide project is to provide all children and young people with free or significantly reduced-cost cultural opportunities.
