Münsterland Cultural Council

The Kulturrat Münsterland brings together about 50 representatives from politics and administration as well as from various cultural sectors.

One of the most important tasks of the Münsterland Cultural Council is to advise and recommend projects for financial support through the Regional Cultural Policy Programme. The Kulturrat Münsterland is also the first point of contact for the Regional Council of the administrative district of Münster for this topic and questions concerning cultural funding.

In addition, the Kulturrat Münsterland provides impulses in terms of content, takes a stand on cultural policy issues and gives weight as a representation of the interests of the cultural region. Permanent guests are the representatives of the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Münster Regional Government.
