The Kinder- und Jugendkulturwerkstatt (JuKuWe) is a public institution for children and youths independent of religion and social status. It is located on the edge of a residential area in the southeast part of Leipzig. It offers courses, projects and workshops for children and youths in the artistic and cultural field like Theatre, Art, Photography, Literature, Multimedia, Drawing and Pottery. In the JuKuWe there are four full-time staff members, one German long term volunteer and a number of freelancers. The children and youths are provided with the opportunity to explore their surroundings and to learn how to express themselves through artistic media. They receive support and encouragement from artists. It is understood that the children and youths want to organize their own events and workshops and these are integrated into the normal operation of the JuKuWe. Child and Youth cultural work should provide the participants the support they need to articulate themselves freely and diversely through artistic means and thereby increase their own sense of selfworth. Specific aims of the JuKuWe include conveyance of artistic skills and abilities, arousal and development of interests and inclinations, creative exploration with various materials and development of key social skills through the artistic-creative exploration, inter-disciplinary and intercultural projects. There is a close cooperation amongst the parents, partners, course participants and staff which provides for a positive atmosphere throughout the JuKuWe. The children and youths regularly participate in exhibitions and competitions. The JuKuWe has been actively involved in international projects since 1997.
