2020 support for artistic exchange projects throughout the year
The “International Cultural Exchange” department of the Ministry of Culture and Media supports artistic exchange projects between Hamburg and foreign countries within the budget available.
The goal is for the Hamburg cultural and creative scene to become more international and better connected and to present itself in an international context. Support is focussed in particular on Hamburg’s sister cities and partner regions such as Chicago, Dar es Salaam, Dresden, León, Marseille, Osaka, Prague, Shanghai, St Petersburg; Eastern Asia, the Baltic, the Arab World, India, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
Applicants can submit their bids for funding (form in German only) throughout the year without the need to meet a particular deadline.
