About us

Kultur Aktiv was founded as an association in 2002 to support urban subculture in Dresden’s district ‘Neustadt’. Only a few years later it was expanded to an organization that knows how to professionally network and present art and culture in Germany and abroad.

Kultur Aktiv promotes arts and culture, education and creative potentials through international exchange and voluntary commitment.

Annually we perform several big projects with over 30 individuals with more than 100’000 participants and visitors. Our team acts in 15 countries, and our artists cover a distance of 150’000 km per year! On the list of the activities are festivals, club concerts and parties, reading sessions, exhibitions, movie nights, flash mobs and campaigns, multipliers’ meetings, voluntary services and internships, training courses,  workshops and discussions.

Furthermore, to everyone who’s interested we offer a basis to carry out their own ideas and projects of various cultural categories. We create and arrange opportunities for presenting independently initiated cultural projects in Dresden and the surrounding area. Among those are primarily projects of local urban and social culture.
