Promoting a dynamic cultural scene

The Capital Cultural Fund sponsors cultural projects and events— including inter- and transdisciplinary projects—in practically all areas of the arts. Funded projects should be of significance to Berlin as the German capital and also of national and international relevance.
In addition to funding individual projects, the Capital Cultural Fund also funds the presentation of especially successful projects (Wiederaufnahme) as well as selected festivals of cultural and political relevance. 

Allocation of funding from the Capital Cultural Fund

The Capital Cultural Fund receives an annual budget of €15 million.

Project Funding

The Capital Cultural Fund is designed primarily to fund individual cultural projects. Projects are selected twice annually for the following year. Institutional funding is not possible.

The main criteria in selecting projects for funding are artistic quality and high-value content.
