The District Culture Fund

The fund welcomes artistic and cultural as well as regional and historical projects, and supports cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary projects presented in Berlin Mitte. Projects are expected to be focused on the further development of artistic forms of expression, the region’s history or on creating links between local cultural institutions. Please note that no cultural education projects are supported by the District Culture Fund (BKF). Subsidies are granted subject to the fulfilment of the budgetary requirements and on the basis of a recommendation from the jury. The jury is made up of representatives from different artistic disciplines and representatives from the Department of Art, Culture and History.
