In 2012, the Land of Northrhine Westphalia installed a funding for cultural projects especially for children and young people aged 10-14. The "cultural backpack" contains a wide range of projects and workshops in different art forms. The idea is to invite children and young people in touch with arts and culture, and to keep the barriers as low as possible. HELIOS Theater has been a partner of "Kulturrucksack" in Hamm from the very beginning. We offer holiday workshops and theatre projects for children and young people. Schools have the possibility to visit performances with classes from the age group and experience theatre, its means and the themes of the play in a special workshop. If you are interested to learn more about the programme, you're welcome to contact us.
