An important concern of the Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen is its provision of art education and mediation for all age-groups. A varied and diverse program of events enables the public to come into contact with and learn about modern and contemporary art. Free entry to the gallery forms a cornerstone of this approach – a special initiative of the Stadt Sindelfingen.

The gallery shapes the cultural life of the town with a wide-ranging program structured around its exhibitions. In addition to public tours, the formats “Kunst zur Marktzeit” on Saturdays and after-work-hours “Langer Donnerstag” offer the chance to engage in discussion on current questions about art, society and culture, alongside such interdisciplinary formats as artist-talks, lectures, readings and concerts. From Friday to Sunday, exhibition guides are also on hand to answer questions about the exhibition on show and offer short tours. A public tour takes place every Saturday at 3:00 p.m.

For children and teenagers, the gallery offers an age-appropriate program that takes place both in school term time and during holidays, offering children’s tours, workshops and projects. As such, the gallery sees itself not only as a place of learning for all age-groups: here, too, is space to experiment, try out, and together experience the new.

Held in cooperation with the Gesamtförderverein kits@kita e. V., the Kunst-Stoff project takes place on a yearly basis. Childcare facilities in Sindelfingen are supported in creating artistic projects within the town’s day care centers in collaboration with artists from the region. This museum-educational format takes a multilayered approach to art education, opening up access to new artistic formats to both children and their families, as well as those in their wider social sphere.
