Short-term feasibility funding for projects of the independent scene

With the microgrant, short-term failures and unexpected challenges in the realisation of a project can be absorbed. Small amounts are often enough to realise artistic projects, small concerts, experiments and laboratory situations without the artists involved having to pay extra in the end. By contributing funds for accommodation, travel and/or fees, ON Cologne strengthens the cooperation between ON and local artists in short-term projects. With a relatively manageable financial outlay, sustainability can be achieved for the development of Cologne as a city of music by realising new, creative and innovative approaches to artistic work.

Projects that are supported in this way are also accompanied by ON with extensive public relations measures and thus receive even more attention. Our #microgrant (Mikrostipendium) can be applied for all year round, even at short notice, without deadlines and informally.
