10,000 Euros for a Restart in Culture – Great Response to our Call

Aktion 10.000 Euro für Kulturneustart Kulturförderung

The anniversary campaign of our cultural funding was met with great interest. We received numerous applications – and selected a total of 15 student projects for special funding.

This allows us to look optimistically to the future of student cultural life in Leipzig: The Studentenwerk leipzig has received 42 applications for the "10,000 Euros for a Restart in Culture" programme, which was much more than the initiators had expected. The programme is part of the campaigns for the 100th anniversary of the Studentenwerk and is intended to support a restart for student culture after the Corona-related constraints.

For a total of 10,000 euros in cultural funding, it was possible to submit funding applications with a particularly low threshold. It turned out that the there is great desire among students to organize cultural projects together, especially now. Funding from the programme will be awarded to 15 projects. Among them are exhibitions, book projects, performances and much more.

Most of the other applicants have the opportunity to make a new attempt via a standard application to the Cultural Committee of the Studentenwerk. The next meeting of the committee is to be held on 3 August 2021.
