ONpaper: Introduction to the project funding

»Project Funding«

Mon, 21.08.2023 4–5.30 p.m. in German spoken language.

This workshop offers an introduction to project funding in the field of contemporary music. We will give an overview of the funding landscape in Cologne and Berlin and present the relevant funding programs of both cities with their different funding criteria. In doing so, we go into the types of funding and look at which funding fits the project in the first place. We will explain the effects of German federalism on funding structures and who decides on project funding and on what basis. Afterwards there will be time for your questions.

→ Overview of the funding landscape in Cologne and Berlin
→ Presentation of the relevant funding programs and types of funding
→ Which funding fits the project?
→ Background information on project funding in Germany

The online workshop aims to impart basic knowledge and works with input units, group discussions, small group tasks and collegial exchange.

The introductions to the application process and the German funding landscape are made jointly by Cologne and Berlin. For the funding pools in Berlin and Cologne we split into breakout sessions.

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 »Project Funding« we will get you ready for grant applications in autumn with introductions to the funding landscapes of Berlin and Cologne, application writing, or accounting.

In a second block of workshops, topics such as time management, ensemble management, as well as insights into the music business, will direct our attention to the world around the music stands. Even if terms such as »business« and »time management« can seem daunting at first, the modules will be designed to be vivd and interactive so that both experienced musicians and newcomers can feel at ease.
