The Initiative Musik Office
We are located at the creative center of Berlin. The doors to our offices in a charming courtyard are always open to both applicants and other interested individuals. We are your first and personal point of contact for any questions you might have about funding. We always keep our Web site – www.initiative-musik.de – up-to-date to make it easy for you to stay informed about our offerings, current issues, and dialog boards. Consider us at your service when it comes to any questions you might have about applications and your own ideas.
What do we do?
The main office is responsible for structuring all tasks of the Initiative Musik. Among other things, we check on the plausibility of applications and ensure that they meet all the formal criteria. We prepare the decisions for the supervisory board, enter into funding contracts with recipients, accompany you until your work is completed, and process all financial support together with you. Thereafter, we check to see whether everything has gone according to plan, whether the funds have been put to proper use, and that all documents are in order. If at some point you begin to wonder whether you can use your support funds to purchase a Rolls Royce, please just take a short moment to give us a call instead. If your application doesn’t really fit our parameters, we might just know about another support provider for you.
We will continue to adapt our support to the needs of the market and to use feedback to meet the demands of our applicants. It’s very important now, at the beginning, to set our course and make appropriate adjustments. Taking advantage of the wealth of experience embodied by the members of our supervisory board and additional experts, we want to distribute funding for the music industry as quickly and non-bureaucratically as possible. But we can’t do everything – there just aren’t enough funds for that!
