Making it possible for children and young people in rural areas to have direct encounters with artists – that was the idea when the Crespo Foundation set up the flying artist’s room in 2018 as a programme for cultural development in schools, in cooperation with the Hessian Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs (HKM) and the Hessian Ministry of Science and the Arts (HMWK). 

The flying artist’s room is being represented by six mobile art studios on six school playgrounds in rural Hessen as well as a flying artist’s room in an urban setting in the Frankfurt district of Preungesheim since spring 2023. Each flying artist’s room takes up residence for two years, allowing artists in residence living and working in the mobile building to embark on artistic processes with the schools and the local people.
