Project funding

Germany has a broad cultural funding system that enables artists to implement projects and make a living from them. However, accessing such funds – be they public or private – requires good preparation and, sometimes, a lot of patience.

The information below was compiled in collaboration with Kulturförderpunkt Berlin with the aim of supporting artists who have just arrived in Berlin in obtaining the financial means to continue their work. It provides an overview of Germany's cultural landscape and funding instruments, goes through the application process step by step, and includes references to additional support and advisory services.
