is entering its 4th round!

Another 40 million euros for the dance support program in the context of NEUSTART KULTUR.

The runtime of the support program NPN-STEPPING OUT will be extended until the end of 2022. A total of 13 million euros will be made available for this as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR 2 dance support program of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. 4.5 million euros have already been included in the previous funding practice, and another 8.5 million euros are now being added. This makes a 4th round of grants for choreographic projects in public, media and digital space possible!

In order to provide additional performance space for the many artistic projects developed during the lockdowns, the funding program will also support the adaptation of stage pieces for performance in public space in the future. 

For project manager Walter Heun, the opportunity to expand the funding spectrum is an important enhancement for extending the program: “Cultural production does not stand still during the Corona pandemic. With the extension of the grant, we now have the opportunity to respond to the specific problems of the dance and performance scene. The increase of the previous budget by 4.5 million and the additional 8.5 million euros for future funding make us very happy for all artists – a hopeful sign and also one of recognition.”



Cancellation of guest performances due to the coronavirus

The current situation presents us all with completely new challenges and has significant impact, particularly in the cultural sector, which must be considered on an individual basis. Within the framework of NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ, we receive numerous inquiries regarding the legal consequences of the cancellation of already approved guest performances due to the coronavirus.

The following options apply to guest performances that have already been granted:




The funding program NPN-STEPPING OUT, realized by JOINT ADVENTURES - Walter Heun within the framework of NEUSTART KULTUR of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, receives another 4,5 million euros for the 3rd round of grants. This enables further 154 projects to be funded!

In the form of a personal letter, Minister of State for Culture Prof. Monika Grütters announced the extension of the three funding programs of the Nothilfe Tanz program within the framework of Neustart Kultur, implemented by JOINT ADVENTURES/NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ, Diehl+Ritter and Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e.V., with a total of 40 million euros and expressed her gratitude for the trusting cooperation and committed implementation of the Corona support programs.
