City of Nuremberg

The "Amt für Kultur und Freizeit (KUF)" (Culture and Leisure Department) is a local public institution that initiates, organises, and facilitates culture, leisure and informal education activities in the City of Nuremberg. Our facilities and services are mainly neighbourhood-based. Our activities go from encouragement of the neighbourhoods’ culture, forums for urban development processes, cultural educational programs, cultural highlight events etc. KUF enables the participation of all groups in cultural activities respecting the cultural and political concepts of cultural democracy ("culture of all" / "culture for all"). We put special emphasis on the areas of human rights, intergenerational and intercultural work. The KUF was Lead Partner in the CEP project “Second Chance” (2011 – 2013) dealing with revitalisation of deliric brownfield urban sites through culture and Public Private Partnerships.
