HURRA. Children's and youth art school program

Our children's and youth art school program is supported by the Rhineland-Palatinate state program for the promotion of youth art schools and the Kultur macht stark program of The German Federation for Arts Education and Cultural Learning.


Kunsthalle Mainz wants to provide an access to contemporary art for as many people as possible.

Therefore we offer inclusive public tours with object descriptions for the blind and visually impaired, with translation into German sign language and in Einfacher Sprache (easy language).

People with disabilities can take part in all public tours, events, courses and workshops. Seating is available during the tours. Step-free access to all works of art is given.
