In the application process, a financing plan is, in a way, the feasibility study of the project description. The workshop provides a basic knowledge of how to prepare a financing plan and shows how it can reflect the essence of your application. How do you envision your project in practice? Is the project realistic or not? What is the relationship between artistic expenses and overhead?
In order for the grant money to be used in full after approval, the grant projects must be handled correctly in terms of content and finances. The basis for this is the »Kostenfinanzierungsplan«, whose function changes slightly with the grant being approved. In the second part, the workshop teaches how to correctly retrieve and correctly account for grant funds and how to properly document and prepare proofs of use.
The correct communication with the funding agencies will also be discussed, as this is often the best protection against reclaims and unnecessary work steps.
The online workshop aims to impart basic knowledge and works with input units, group discussions, small group tasks and collegial exchange.

About ONpaper digital workshop series by Initiative Neue Musik Berlin / field notes and ON Cologne
In this year’s online workshop series Onpaper, which we are again organizing together with the initiative neue musik / field notes experts will teach basic skills for working in the independent scene.
Under the heading »Application Fitness« we will get you ready for project funding in the spring. In addition to classic workshops with introductions to the funding landscapes of Berlin and Cologne, to writing applications, or to accounting, this year we are also building on new formats and offering Meet the Jury, regular funding regulars’ tables, or sessions on writing applications together.
Although the independent scene defines itself in part precisely by breaking away from hierarchical ways of working that widely encourage the abuse of power and racism, it is not exempt from structural exclusion either. On the contrary, it lacks diverse perspectives and non-normative bodies, attitudes, narratives, and aesthetics. With workshops on anti-racism and diversity development, we would like to accompany the scene in this process of opening up, sensitize it to blind spots, and facilitate access to the scene for marginalized people with empowerment offers.
A third module on press and public relations, audience development, and profile building and management will provide concrete assistance in the development and implementation of projects.
The workshops are aimed at artists from the independent contemporary music scene in Cologne and Berlin and are free of charge. We ask for binding registrations.
The workshop series will be continued after the summer break. We will announce the program in the course of the next months. Please feel free to contact us with your ideas or suggestions at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
