The foundation’s funding policy is to stimulate both quality and daring in the arts and culture. Key selection criteria in the decision to make an award are the artistic quality and innovative concept of the project concerned. In these respects applications for funding to individuals and support for experimental concepts are treated equally alongside large scale artistic projects whose impact stretches beyond the region.
Kunststiftung NRW funding is particularly aimed at establishing a legacy where art of outstanding aesthetic quality continues to be developed and to have an effect and at consolidating its national and international reputation.
