Since 2002, the LaFT BW has financially supported ambitious regional festivals on the independent professional dance and theatre scene on behalf of the state and with funding provided by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg.
These festivals stand out for the fact that they have become (or will become) firmly established in the region and present high-quality independent dance and theatre productions from Baden-Württemberg. In addition, they target audiences outside metropolitan areas that would otherwise have little or no access to such cultural offerings. Festivals in metropolitan areas that make a significant contribution to introducing independent theatre to larger audiences in their respective communities are also eligible for funding. There is no fixed maximum funding amount.
The application deadline is binding. Applications for Regional Festivals funding can be submitted online from one month prior to the application deadline until the deadline, midnight of 15 November. Instructions for applying online with a summary of the most common questions can be found here.
The funds approved by the LaFT BW are subject to the general auxiliary conditions for project funding (ANBest-P) of the state.
If you have questions about the application, please contact our office in good time (at least 2 weeks before the application deadline).
