The Münsterland Art and Culture Foundation pursues the promotion and preservation of art and culture in the Münsterland region. As a regional foundation, it is situated between local sponsors, community foundations, the funding opportunities of local/regional companies and the foundations or cultural sponsors operating throughout Westphalia or the state.
The committed cultural work, especially in rural regions, is largely shaped by semi-professional initiatives with a strong voluntary commitment. However, these initiatives often have no access to established cultural funding closed to them. Sponsorship funds can also only be raised to a limited extent.
Against this background, the Münsterland Art and Culture Foundation aims to close the gap between local commitment and established cultural funding. At the Münsterland level, it aims to support ambitious projects by cultural initiatives and associations that combine voluntary commitment with professional standards.
The business of the Münsterland Art and Culture Foundation is conducted in the Münsterland Cultural Office is managed by the Münsterland Cultural Office.
The application deadline for projects in the coming year is 30 November.
