Access to culture
In 2010, as part its policy for promoting access to culture for all, the City of Luxembourg and the non-profit organisation Cultur'All entered into an agreement, undertaking to contribute to the "Kulturpass" programme, which allows people experiencing economic hardship to gain access to culture.
The "Kulturpass" is an individual pass issued upon request to persons or families experiencing difficult economic circumstances. It is valid for one year and entitles holders to free admission to all Luxembourg City museums, and to purchase entrance tickets to events organised by Luxembourg City's cultural partners at €1.50 (per event and per person), within the limit of the number of places allotted by each partner.
Anyone living in Luxembourg City who 1) qualifies for cost-of-living benefits, or 2) has applied for international protection and is awaiting a decision, or 3) has been denied such protection but has been granted tolerated stay (statut de tolérance), may receive a "Kulturpass".
The Office social (Social Welfare Office) is responsible for reaching out to target audiences, granting the Kulturpass to those entitled to it, and maintaining a list of holders. The "Kulturpass" was officially launched on 17 October 2009, the World Day to Overcome Extreme Poverty.
