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. As a matter of principle, funding for CD productions and printing subsidies is excluded. Also excluded are pure workshop formats, internal club anniversaries, benefit events, festivals and celebrations of any kind (e.g. Christmas parties, award ceremonies, etc.) as well as profit-oriented, commercially feasible projects.
Amount of Funding
A total amount of 400,000 € is available for the programme in 2024.
