If three or more concerts are applied for at the same time in one calendar year (01.01. - 31.12.), the subsidy increases to 60% of the fee from the third concert onwards, if the performances are spread over the calendar year in one city and relate to several bands. Multiple performances by the same ensembles do not fall under this increased funding.
The funding is applied for per performance. From the third funding application onwards, the organiser applies for a subsidy of 60% instead of 50% of the concert fee.
The concert fees can be found in the current catalogue.
In addition, the project must be open to the public. Exceptions apply to internal school events.
The project must not have been started by the time the grant is confirmed. This includes public relations work, conclusion of contracts, awarding of contracts and payments.
Funding is not provided for parties and organisations that pursue a profit-making objective.
Applications must be submitted via the NRWKS funding portal.
An additional cost and financing plan must be uploaded to the funding portal for all projects with a total volume of more than 5,000 euros.
Please note whether further documents, e.g. letters of recommendation or letters of approval from other funding bodies, need to be uploaded to the funding portal for the application.
The application must also be sent by post.
Organisers from the member cities of the Kultursekretariat NRW Gütersloh should contact them directly for funding requests.
