TANZPAKT Kick-off 3rd Round
National information event, 6th May 2021, 2–5pm (online)

The promotion programme TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund supports established artists and ensembles with an international reach as well as excellence projects and production structures, and develops new nationally relevant initiatives to strengthen the art from that is dance. Consolidating dance in cultural-political and structural terms at the municipal and federal state levels is essential in order to develop substantial projects and improve long-term financing. A key aspect of the programme is thus to effect, through on-going dialogue, long-term commitment from municipalities and federal states.

On 6th May, we will be providing information about the promotion programme, the funding areas and the application procedure. Additional, regional information events are planned for 2021, in Munich, Dresden, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia.



To be continued! Funding of more than €5 million available for dance in Germany until 2025

The new framework conditions for the TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund (Dance Pact Local-Regional-National) programme to promote excellence in dance have been decided: the initiative by municipalities, federal states and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) is to be continued. The result is welcome and a fresh call for applications for the period from 2021 to 2025, for which a total of €5.125 million of federal funding is available, will be issued this year.

In addition to funding for new projects, the 15 pilot-phase projects can also apply, to develop their concepts further.

TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund

TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund is a joint initiative of municipalities, federal states and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media to promote excellence in dance.

TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund is aimed at established artists, ensembles and production structures with international appeal. In addition, institutions that develop nationally outstanding and innovative development concepts are addressed. The aim is to realise relevant projects that contribute to the further artistic and structural development, strengthening and profiling of dance as an art form in Germany.

From 22 to 24 January 2020, we held an extremely exciting and inspiring project meeting with the funded projects of TANZLAND and TANZPAKT Stadt Land Bund in Berlin at the Schillertheater-Werkstatt at the TANZKOMPLIZEN.

We look back on three exciting days with constructive lectures, talks and discussions.
The joint day was dedicated to political dialogue in dealing with the right and concrete counter-strategies of the cultural sector in exciting discussions and panels.
