kultúrAktív’s aim is to develop, practice and convey innovative methods that mediate and present the built environment. We initiate and support projects that boost responsiveness towards the built environment surrounding us. Instead of passive contemplation, we encourage an active reception and interpretation that is both critical and analytical. The kultúrAktív Association is among the first ones in Hungary to engage in built environment education, a special field that examines andexplains urban environment, amends environmental education and reflects on the phenomenon of urban development.
The Association was established in 2010 by four cultural managers participating in the qualification program of the Robert Bosch Foundation. Since then we have a dozen of new members and have participated in several projects, professional panels and researches both in Hungary and abroad. We have published several methodical volumes and children’s books, as well as organized various programs for educators and children.
