What awaits you

Getting to know cultural practitioners in the region

The Münsterland e.V. Cultural Office networks, coordinates and promotes cultural projects in Münsterland. In concrete terms, this means that we advise artists and cultural practitioners on how best to realise their projects and organise the allocation of funding. We support cultural projects in the region with press and public relations work, our website and our social media channels. And we bring cultural workers together for "Stammtisch" (regulars' table) and train them further with the seminars of our cultural academy. To do this, we travel a lot - when it's not a pandemic - visiting theatres, museums, orchestras, artists throughout the region and, of course, always involving our FSJ worker.

Participate in our own projects: Münsterland Festival, artist exchange, literature residency.

But we also implement our own cultural projects: Every two years, the Münsterland Festival takes place with exciting concerts and musicians from all over the world. Lars Krolik and the festival team are always happy to receive help with preparation, implementation and artist support! The taNDem project brings together artists from Germany and the Netherlands. Project manager Andre Sebastian is on the road a lot for this and will gladly take you along for support. Last but not least, the literature residency stadt.land.text NRW will take place in 2022. Ten young authors will then be guests in NRW for four months, travelling and writing. Project coordinator Simone Schiffer can make good use of helping hands, because readings need to be organised.

Looking right and left: Popcorn, tourism, business and marketing

Our office is at Münster/Osnabrück Airport in Greven. You can reach it easily by express bus or by car - parking is free for staff and there is a small monthly travel allowance. The journey is worth it, by the way, because a music-making popcorn machine is waiting for you at the airport. If that's nothing! We also work together in Münsterland e.V. with around 50 colleagues from tourism, business, marketing and press and public relations. Curious about what tourism and business promotion mean, how a marketing campaign works or how the perfect press release arouses the interest of journalists? Then you have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of these areas during your FSJ in culture.

We look forward to seeing you

Anything but monotonous! In short: During an FSJ in culture at the Münsterland Cultural Office, you are part of our small team in the large team of Münsterland e.V., travel a lot with us and can try out different tasks. Together we will see what interests you most and how you can contribute your own ideas. Of course, in between you will also have to bag a mailing or prepare a meeting. It's all in the mix.
