About us

Petit Papillon e.V. is a non-profit association for the promotion of art and culture, with the aim of offering an orientation for young people after school.

The association's program is designed to help participants find out for themselves how they want to shape their educational path. This is done through basic training in crafts, the visual and performing arts, and the study of philosophy and literature. The association's headquarters and premises are in Alfter near Bonn, the university location of the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences. A cooperation with the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences is planned, in which the participants can have the orientation program credited for a later study.

Our current project is the "Compass Initiative". This is to be a precursor for the Petit Papillon e.V. orientation program starting in 2024.
