New crowdfunding platform
(July 12, 2017) The new crowdfunding platform launched by the Cultural and Creative Industries Team in cooperation with Startnext showcases creative Munich-based projects that are looking for crowdfunding. Competitions will also help attract attention.
The crowdfunding platform comes as the city's response to creatives' desire for greater visibility, better networking options, new formats and funding tools, and more appreciation for the cultural and creative industries in general.
As a joint initiative backed by whiteBOX and the Cultural and Creative Industries Team, Munich has also established its first crowdfunding competition – under the name stadt.raum.kunst (“city.space.art”) – to drive creativity in the city. This initiative is on the lookout for projects that apply themselves to constant change in Munich's urban and living space. Performances, music productions, urban gardening, street art, social inclusion projects, computer games, purely artistic approaches, you name it: The sky is the limit as far as genres and formats are concerned.
