Scholarships, workshops, competitions
Innsbruck, Austria

Since 2008, the funding program Art in Public Space has been implemented in cooperation between the State of Tyrol and the Tiroler Künstler*innenschaft (Tyrolean Artists' Association), and financed by the State of Tyrol. For the year 2021, it is announced for the first time under a thematic focus defined by the Tiroler Künstler*innenschaft, intended to bracket its content while writing concepts and implementing the chosen projects. The aim of the funding is to promote contemporary art and cultural projects in public space, so making the discussion of current social issues accessible to a broad public and opening up a dialogue on cultural, social and political issues. 

Three independent, expert jurors appointed in conjunction by the State of Tyrol and the Tiroler Künstler*innenschaft will choose from among the submitted projects and develop a proposition for funding. The final decision on funding is made by the member of the Tyrolean State Parliament responsible for cultural affairs.
