What is PlayArt?

PlayArt is a nationwide boost for the 0-6 age range. We build bridges and create encounters between children, daycare workers, educators, daycare leaders, researchers, students, teachers, artists and cultural mediators.

PlayArt brings the youngest closer to art and culture and researches what the encounter with art, culture and aesthetic processes in everyday life means for children's play and education as well as for the adults around them.

PlayAart is a co-creative practice in close cooperation with pedagogue education and thus also has an impact on the everyday lives of future pedagogues.
