CROSSborder Funding
Sounded great, was great!

In cooperation with the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the Federal State of Vorarlberg, we organised an information event on the subject of cross-border funding programmes. More than 40 interested people from art and culture from the entire Lake Constance region and Tyrol came to Spielboden Dornbirn that morning to find out about EU funding programmes, ask questions and exchange ideas.

Despite the wide variety of funding opportunities, hardly any EU funding has been channelled into the arts and culture in Vorarlberg in recent years. This needs to change with the help of Culture Perspectives 2024 and in anticipation of the European Capital of Culture 2024! The first information event of this kind in Vorarlberg since 2005 provided artists and cultural workers of the region with the most important facts, the right contacts and lots of encouragement to apply for more EU funding!

Elisabeth Pacher from the Austrian Federal Chancellery opened the information event with the presentation of the 'Creative Europe' funding programme. Hubert Hämmerle and Martha Stüttler-Hartmann, Vorarlberg, provided information about 'Interreg' and the information centre 'Europe Direct'. The presentations were accompanied by practical input and experiences by Michael Stolhofer from the ImPulsTanz Festival Vienna and Christoph Töny, Chairman of the Klostertal Museum Association.
