FUNDING TO PROMOTE AN ARTISTIC APPROACH
TO 20th CENTURY DANCE

WHAT IS TANZFONDS.DE?

Tanzfonds.de is the website dedicated to two funds initiated by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation), namely Tanzfonds Erbe (Dance Heritage Fund) and Tanzfonds Partner (Dance Partner Fund). DIEHL+RITTER is the non-profit agency managing the funds. Although Tanzfonds Partner – a fund for partnerships between schools and dance institutions – expired in 2014, Tanzfonds Erbe has been extended to 2018. Information about the application procedure, documentary videos on previous and current Tanzfonds projects as well as additional contributions on the theme of dance heritage can all be found at tanzfonds.de.

SPECIAL FOCUS: DANCE AND COPYRIGHT

Copyright is an unavoidable aspect of dealing with dance heritage. At the same time, dance is largely omitted from public debates on copyright issues. In addition to contributions to debates, we provide useful tools for dance artists.
