As part of the Arbeitsraumprogramm (Workspace Programme) of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe, Kultur Räume Berlin awards subsidised spaces to artists from Berlin’s independent scene in regular calls for applications.

Our subsidised spaces are available to independent artists of all artistic disciplines.

The basic requirement for every application is proof of artistic professionalism, i.e. proof of artistic education or vocational training or several years of practical experience. Furthermore, applicants must prove their primary residence in Berlin. In the case of groups, ensembles, collectives, etc., the majority of the members must have their primary residence in Berlin.

Whether you can apply for a space depends on the respective tender and the type of space. If dance rehearsal spaces are advertised, for example, dance companies and dancers can apply. Music rehearsal spaces are offered for musicians, writing spaces are for writers, etc

The exact requirements for an application can be found in the respective call for applications. Current calls for applications can be found under News.
