Processuality, action orientation, interdisciplinary organisational structures and acceptance of the existing diversity are indispensable areas in the educational system. In this context, the link with art and culture opens up a wide range of opportunities for all actors. The broad field of arts education, for example, provides teachers and students with the opportunity to develop their skills.
