ONpaper: Introduction to project fundig / Berlin:Köln

The 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.

About ONpaper

In this year's online workshop series ONpaper, which we are organizing again together with ON Cologne, 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 in Berlin and Cologne, application writing or accounting, this year we are exploring new formats such as Meet the Jury, informal get-togethers on funding or sessions for 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 exclusions 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 on the process of opening up, sensitize for blind spots and facilitate access to the scene for marginalized persons with empowerment offers.

A third module on press and public relations, audience development, profile building and management will provide concrete assistance in the development and implementation of projects.

The workshop series will be continued after the summer break. We will announce the program in the course of the next few months. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions or proposals.
