Urban spaces are constantly changing. Something new appears and then something old disappears to make room for something new again. We react to this urban space, claim it as our own, occupy it, meet up with others there and establish relationships with people and spaces. This is the inspiration behind Munich's first crowdfunding competition. We're looking for your project – anything connected to Munich's public spaces and environment, and their ever-changing face. Whether performance, music production, urban gardening, StreetArt, public participation projects or purely artistic – the sky's the limit when it comes to genre and format.

The contest is open to:

  • anybody involved in culture and art, artists of all kinds, associations, organisations, companies, students, alumni and general citizens
  • who are planning an artistic-cultural project, involving Munich's public spaces and environment, and which will be ready for implementation in 2018
  • and want to start a crowdfunding project on Startnext with a fund-raising goal of at least €5,000 up to a maximum of €15,000.
