Urban quarters funding
Strengthening identity, moving the variety of urban society to the forefront, supporting structures and networks.
This is what the NRW KULTURsekretariat has committed to with its new programme for the funding of urban quarters in its member cities.
Applicants for projects focusing on these aspects are civic initiatives, associations or artists resident in peripheral urban districts, who know their quarter and its needs best.
The essential prerequisite for funding is an established, professional tandem partner in the field of art and culture, who will be involved in the project. Partners can be both institutions and individuals, depending on the project and its initiator.
Applications are welcome immediately. The applications are worked out together with cultural authorities or offices and then are forwarded through the member cities to the NRWKS.
The member city itself contributes 25 % of the costs to the project funding.
