The Dutch ministery of culture decided to make an extra € 300 million available for the cultural and creative sector.
Great news but where will the support go to?
At first the money goes ‘obviously’ to compagnies and institutes who are previously approved as important for the creative sector, compagnies who get founded already.
But this is just a small part of compagnies who are essential to our creative sector.
There is a wide range of vital compagnies, working with their own strengths having the biggest problem now. No performances no income!
It would be an enormous lost if we lose these important compagnies and all artists involved. But how do we reach them?
The festival “Deventer op Stelten” decided to bring their funding directly to the essential non-founded street-theatre companies, who performed on their beautiful festival.
“DEVENTER OP STELTEN” THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I hope you will inspire other festivals with your generous and impressive effort.
