jw

Jan Willem Koelewijn-Supervisor Germany
After studying art education in Holland, I
thought the street was a more lively place
to learn about art than the museum. So I’ve
been organizing activities for teenagers
with Moroccan background. I moved to Berlin
nine years ago and started social cultural
work with children in Berlin. There, I love to
support children in discovering their passions
and powers which they can develop to have a
more self determined life. With the founding
of Schoolclash I can combine my love for art
and history of past and present Berlin and
the positive ‘clash’ of cultures.
