Authors at School, a joint initiative of Holtzbrinck Berlin – Inspire Together, the U.S. Embassy in Berlin and the AmerikaHaus NRW e.V., brings creative writing workshops with U.S. authors to schools throughout Germany.
Cultural education is a key element for living peacefully together in our society. It promotes personality development and helps to convey values and skills such as creativity, solidarity and empathy.
Authors at School uses cultural education as empowerment for everyone involved.
