Project funding

Since 1997, the LaFT BW has financially supported outstanding projects on the independent dance and theatre scene with means made available by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg.

Project funding is granted exclusively from the initial creation of the production until its premiere. Thus, costs or revenues for the premiere or subsequent performances are not part of the application. There is no fixed maximum sum for funding. However, the application must include a conclusive financial plan as well as a well-rounded project description.

The projects funded should stand out for their artistic quality, originality and exemplary character, and give impetus to the work and development of the independent dance and theatre scene in Baden-Württemberg. Funding takes the form of a fixed amount of financial support.

The application deadlines are binding. Applications for project funding can be submitted online from one month before the application deadline to midnight of the final day, which is either 15 November or 15 May. Instructions for online application with a summary of the most common questions can be found here.
