IMPACT-Funding 2021

The IMPACT-Funding replaces the funding programme „Interkulturelle Projekte“ with the aim of a to date strengthening of local diversity in the Berlin cultural scene.

Eligible persons / Target group

The funding can be awarded to professional artists with a primary residence in Berlin.

Purpose of Funding

The aim of the programme is to support diversity in the Berlin cultural industry, especially in the free art scene. The IMPACT-funding therefore addresses artists and groups of all artistic disciplines whose artistic perspectives are currently not sufficiently presented to the public. The visibility of those perspectives shall be strengthened and their development enabled.
