PURPOSE OF THE FUNDING PROGRAM
Musicboard Berlin cooperates with an independent jury to grant scholarships and residencies to pop musicians and bands who have made Berlin their main place of residence and the centre of their creative work. Musicboard is the only institution in Germany to grant such awards to pop musicians.
The direct funding of musicians is intended to support young talent from Berlin and to honor the innovative power of Berlin’s music creators. The awarding of scholarships and residencies abroad by Musicboard Berlin promotes the further internationalisation of Berlin’s pop music scene and enables transcultural co-productions and networking.
The funding decisions are made with an eye to representing the diversity of Berlin’s music scene. Accordingly, Musicboard and the jury attach great value to inclusion and gender balance in their selection.
