Our objectives

In line with its charter the Fonds Soziokultur e. V. (Sociocultural Fund) funds projects which are limited in time and function as models. They should act as role models for other sociocultural projects and institutions. The aim of socioculture is to engage with and expand both the aesthetic and communicative as well as also the social needs and capabilities of all citizens. Funding of sociocultural projects contributes to cultural equal opportunities, thus further developing the democratic culture of the Federal Republic of Germany.

In this context, objectives are to develop the cultural education of children, adolescents and adults through the communication and adoption of cultural and artistic forms of expression and to encourage and empower active participation in social life. The guiding principle for the Fonds Soziokultur’s funding practices is to strengthen innovation and continuity in the sociocultural practical field. The fund promotes self-organisation and individual responsibility in cultural work.

The budgetary resources of the Fonds Soziokultur are provided by the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media).

Our video campaign, our podcast and our magazine "Kulturszene" (in German) give an insight into the work of Fonds Soziokultur and the funded projects:

Kulturkurve. A Podcast.

Karolina Kaltschnee (freelance journalist, reporter) accompanied 8 projects for us and asked herself: What does art do to people? How important is culture for our society? What actually is socioculture?

The German KULTURKURVE podcast takes us to a stage in a prison, to a bus that travels through Germany as a sound and film studio and to a photo exhibition of queer people.
