In 1989, committed mothers and fathers founded their own cultural association under the direction of Misha Hollaus. The little stick figure KUKI stood for culture for children and became widely known. With a lot of commitment and sensitivity, the cultural understanding was awakened in the children, in which they themselves became artists. The programme was aimed at ensuring that children were not just consumers of culture, they were always active in some way. KuKI organized several children’s painting days with the artist Anton Thuswaldner, dance and theater workshops, painted underpasses and much, much more. Legendary were the KUKI carnival balls in the youth hostel.
Sabine Reichhold succeeded Rainer Casna, long-time chairman, in November 2007 as the new chairwoman of the Tauriska Kaprun cultural association. In the years that followed, the focus was exclusively on children’s events. The aim was and is to bring qualitative children’s theatre to Kaprun with “true” fairy tales, the contents of which are the subject today. For this purpose, high-quality theatre groups are engaged, which encourage the children to participate in their plays with music inserts. But also serious issues such as bullying, discrimination or separation are dealt with and dealt with in a playful way.
