The challenges faced by contemporary cultural politics in Berlin as the capital of cultural diversity is the focus of the event series "Be Berlin – be diverse." To mark the opening of the academy, State Secretary André Schmitz and the Jewish Museum Berlin invite museum experts to discuss what expectations people with migration backgrounds have of cultural institutions, how Berlin’s diversity is reflected in the Berlin museums, and what museums already do or could do to reach young people with migration backgrounds in particular.
