You are worth it! Seven steps how to make your city increase your funding
18th May 2019 | 10:00 - 12:30
Did you always wonder why your city spends so little money on independent culture?
In Leipzig, an initiative of creative artists has managed to increase the budget for the free cultural sector from 1.8 million Euros to 9.6 million Euros in just 10 years!
From this example you can learn how independent culture activists can organize themselves, which strategies are successful (and which are not), which partnerships are important and which tools can be implemented.
Several strategies, conditions and difficulties in different countries can be discussed in the workshop and solutions for specific questions can be developed.
This workshop is useful for anyone interested in cultural policy, lobbying, political self-organisation and long-term strategic working.
Workshop facilitator: Torsten Reitler (Moritzbastei – Leipzig, Germany)
