PAY ATTENTION: The Drop-In Consultation is meant for applicants who have not yet come into contact with the AFK previously. This allows applicants to apply for a grant in a more informal setting. Applicants who have received a grant from the AFK before – as an individual or on behalf of an organisation – are unfortunately not eligible for the Drop-In Consultation.

During the Drop-in Consultation, applicants have a chance to explain their project plan in person. The applicant will receive a decision about his or her project from the AFK within one week.

Drop-in Consultations are open to amateur artists, organisations or institutions, as well as professional artists, organisations or institutions. Before putting together the project plan that will be the subject of your Drop-in Consultation, please read carefully:

  • the scheme (Amateur / Professional)
  • Explanatory Notes on the Scheme (Amateur / Professional)
  • Guidelines When Applying (Amateur / Professional).

During the Office hours, the applicant explains his submitted project plan orally in a 30-minute conversation. The AFK will decide on the contribution in the short term.

PLEASE NOTE: For the Drop-in Consultation you need to make a project plan and a corresponding correct budget plan. In your project plan, you must also devote attention to the marketing and communication for the project. We need this in order to be prepared for your visit during the consultation.

The number of registrations for the Drop-in Consultation is high. A registration therefore offers no guarantee of participation. If you want to be sure that your application will be processed, do not apply via the Drop-in Consultation, but via the regular procedure. Here you will find an overview of the regular subsidy options.
