Kunststiftung NRW funds projects of excellence, unique programmes and innovative concepts in the areas of music, theatre, dance, literature and the visual arts in North Rhine-Westphalia as well as interdisciplinary projects of outstanding artistic quality.

Alongside this, one of Kunststiftung NRW’s most important objectives is the support of young artists of exceptional talent from North Rhine-Westphalia working in the fields of music, theatre, dance, literature and the visual arts. Individually targeted funding initiatives for each of these art forms – often in the shape of residencies or grants – aid and encourage young artists to pursue their own development maturely and effectively.


Please note: Next deadline for applications is Friday, June 29th 2018 at 3 p.m.!

Concerned are only those applications, whose deadline regularly ends on June 30th!

Applications in the section "Visual Arts / Individual Funding" are not concerned of this occasionally shift (find more information here).
