The Deutsches InformationsZentrum Kulturförderung aims to act as a bridge between arts, culture and sponsoring and establish an extensive and up-to-date database. In the long-run the Deutsches InformationsZentrum Kulturförderung shall become a clearing point and international contact point for the funding sector of arts and culture.
The Deutsches InformationsZentrum Kulturförderung collects all information about private and public sponsors of arts and culture in an online database and makes it easily accessible to everyone online. An extensive system of catchwords helps those looking for funding to find the funder which fits their qualification, their ideas and their projects. In this catalogue of funding possibilities, sponsors can position themselves and further develop their offers.
The Deutsches InformationsZentrum Kulturförderung makes the sponsoring of arts and culture in Germany even more professional. For a lively society of knowledge and information, creativity is the main resource. Whoever is sponsoring arts and culture is sponsoring the future of society. Networks and transparency in cultural funding intensify the discourse in society and strengthen the variety of the artistic and cultural landscape in Germany.
Three partners are working together on this project, all of which are important actors, either directly or indirectly, in the field of arts and culture sponsoring. All three bring with them key competences and experience from private and public culture and arts sponsoring. They are convinced, that the exchange of information and data is a huge advantage for every single one and for all together.
The Bundesverband Deutscher Stiftungen has the most extensive and actualised collection of foundation data in Germany. More than 3.000 members of the association have cultural and arts sponsoring as their purpose of sponsoring.
The Kulturkreis der Deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI is the only nationwide platform in Germany for professional and private funding of culture. With its 400 members – most of them enterprises- it stands for the dialogue between economy and culture.
The Kulturstiftung der Länder is an established partner on national and international level for arts and cultural management. Here the research of further information sources and the networking on an international level is being coordinated. There already exists a cooperation with the LabforCulture of the European Cultural Foundation in Amsterdam.
