Art can also offer essential access to education. This is what the Filderstadt Art School and the Pestalozzi School in Filderstadt-Sielmingen in Germany are working towards in a joint project that HUGO BOSS has been supporting since 2015. Children and young people from socially disadvantaged families are given the opportunity to discover their creativity in workshops with professional instructors. This strengthens social skills and their own self-confidence as important skills for their further education. Some of the participants even discover the trades as a career perspective.
Creative work in the region
We have sponsored the "HUGO BOSS Workshop" at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart (Stuttgart State Gallery) since 2016. Here, local schoolchildren and participants of all ages can experiment with design and express their creativity in workshops to experience art first-hand.
