A UNIQUE CULTURAL INITIATIVE
KIRCHHOFF Culture Life
KIRCHHOFF Automotive launched a cultural initiative in 2017 titled KIRCHHOFF Culture Life, which is intended to contribute to the well-being of the workforce and their families. In addition to promoting in-house sporting activities and supporting local sports clubs in the fields of basketball, ice hockey and football, we offer our employees and their families special cultural events throughout the year.
Never Been There Before
KIRCHHOFF Automotive is breaking new ground not only in its own company with this versatile cultural program. Never before and nowhere else has such a comprehensive and largely free cultural initiative been developed exclusively for the employees of a company.
Experience, Marvel, Feel Good, Participate
The various events strengthen the feeling of togetherness and create unique common memories. All events are offered mostly free of charge, and everyone is welcome. At KIRCHHOFF Culture Life Events, participants can not only try out and experience new things, but also get to know colleagues better.
We would like to bring the different facets of culture closer. The aim is to discard inhibitions and prejudices, to be open to the unknown or to be courageous at times. This is also an important and instructive experience when dealing with each other.
In addition to the individual events, our cultural afternoon sessions titled, “Culture Attack” is an integral part of KIRCHHOFF Culture Life. The afternoon of the event takes on a special dimension. With an incredibly multi-faceted program, “Culture Attack” is now on a European tour and inspires more and more employees whereever they go.
Culture is Diversified With Us
KIRCHHOFF Culture Life offers a variety of cultural events and participatory activities – from music to exhibitions and competitions. All events are accompanied by professional artists.
Prof. Thomas F. Kirchhoff is responsible for the programming and organisation of the cultural activities and events. He teaches one of the most successful guitar classes in Europe at the Musikhochschule Detmold. Besides his teaching activities, he is an active musician in the Amadeus Guitar Duo and travels all over the world.
Thanks to his worldwide network in the cultural scene, Thomas Kirchhoff’s contributions to KIRCHHOFF Culture Life go beyond his ability to organize highly interesting events, but really top-class events on an international scale.
He wants to use his personal connections with musicians, visual artists and other creative people to make the constantly changing cultural program attractive and exciting for as many KIRCHHOFF Automotive employees as possible.
