The "Digital Performance" funding programme supports projects that combine digital narratives and technology. The focus is on performative approaches that either deal with themes of digitality or digitalisation and pursue a non-linear dramaturgy or incorporate responsive elements into the stage action.
Organisers, artists, institutions and initiatives from the member cities of the NRW KULTURsekretariat are eligible to apply. Applications can be submitted all year round. The maximum funding amount is 10,000 euros.
The NRWKS has been focussing on digital topics for a long time, for example with the "Next Level - Festival for Games" on digital art and the culture of computer games.
In addition, this field will continue to be expanded in the future in the form of electronic communication platforms and mediation offerings, but also as a medium for the creation of experimental art and dialogue-based action. In this sense, the virtual meeting platform "togather" will also be further developed in 2024.
