The Schoolchurch: unique space for Children to shape the future
Europe embodies a rich culture of history, religion and politics. This culture can be read in retrospective in buildings, spread over the whole territory of Europe, such as churches and monasteries. Religious heritage often is described as something from the past, since Europe is still secularizing. In the Schoolchurch, religious heritage is not exclusively about the past. The medieval church and tower, with 16th century vault paintings is presented in close connection with brand new architecture and design, of the highest artistic level. Children are invited to learn about human beings as extremely imaginative creatures, in history as well as today. The unique, attractive and rich learning environment engages them to submerge into what people believed and found important throughout times, and today, and invites them to tell about their own believes, experiences and traditions. It's not our heritage we should foster and feed. It's our children, because they form the future. In the Schoolchurch we facilitate building a positive society, together. An urgent and beautifull task.
