The flying artist’s room lands in town

The Crespo Foundation’s flying artist’s room in an urban setting is a unique format for cultural education in public spaces. It is being hosted from the summer of 2022 in the Frankfurt district of Preungesheim for a period of two years. Artists in residence will each spend three months living and working in the mobile building – the flying artist’s room – and will embark on artistic processes with local people.

The programme contributes to cultural development in the district and allows children and young people, but also their families and other local residents, to participate directly in art and cultural education.

The Crespo Foundation is cooperating with Frankfurt’s Youth and Social Welfare Office, Preungesheim neighbourhood management in Frankfurt’s Active Neighbourhood scheme run by the Diakonisches Werk (a social welfare organisation) for Frankfurt and Offenbach, Germany’s Child and Youth Foundation and NODE Forum for Digital Arts, an association promoting digital culture.
