Hello and welcome to the KRASS channel! This is where you can find many different short films that show the work we do here at KRASS. Not only that, but you can get a “live” experience of what cultural, artistic, and medial development of underprivileged children and youths looks like.
As every year, on the 20th of November 2015 the city of Düsseldorf has awarded the ‚Martinstaler Prize‘ to citizens who contribute to new projects in the voluntary sector. I am very proud that I and KRASS e.V. belong to the award-winning group . Please see the video of the laudation from the City Mayor Thomas Geisel.
