Projects of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the State Chancellery of Thuringia, Department of Culture and the Arts.
Social relevance, contemporary issues and sensual-aesthetic experiences are central to our educational activities.
We strive to offer our visitors as many points of access to Weimar’s cultural history as possible. To this end, we continuously expand our programmes and improve our strategies. Our efforts are driven by the social debates of our time, developments in the field of digitalisation and the living conditions of our target groups.
Especially with regard to our model projects, we often test new methods, themes and formats in collaboration with national and international partners.
We also cooperate with numerous schools [Link] and universities [Link] with whom we continue to develop our projects.
The Klassik Stiftung Weimar participates in the programme “Culture Opens Worlds”, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
It is also an associate partner in the joint project “museum4punkt0 - Digital Strategies for the Museum of the Future”. From 2017 to 2020 this group of cultural institutions is working together to test digital technologies in various museum-based scenarios. The findings and resulting applications will later be made available to other cultural institutions throughout Germany. The participants of the project headed by the Preußischer Kulturbesitz are: Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin – Preußischer Kulturbesitz, the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss, the German Emigration Center in Bremerhaven, the Deutsches Museum, the Fastnachtsmuseen Schloss Langenstein and Bad Dürrheim with other Carnival museums of the Swabian-Alemannic tradition, and the Senckenberg Natural History Museum in Görlitz. The joint project is financed by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
