Martin-Roth-Initiative: Temporary relocation to Germany for artists and cultural actors at risk

MRI funding in programme line 1 enables cultural organisations in Germany to temporarily host artists and cultural actors and to provide a free and safe space for them to continue their creative work. The funding includes a monthly scholarship.   

However, the MRI is not an emergency program. It therefore cannot provide immediate support or speed up processes.

The 8th of February is the deadline for submission of a request form by the artists/ cultural actors.
