Where can I apply for public funding for my projects?

Music Pool Berlin doesn’t offer any funding programs. Musicians who are registered in Berlin can apply for the funding programs offered by Musicboard Berlin (most ‘popular’ genres, including electronic music) and the Senate Department for Culture and Europe (contemporary music, classical modernity, sound art, and jazz). Musicboard’s funding guide (in German only) compiles further funding possibilities. On a national level, Initiative Musik and Musikfonds are fund projects. For smaller projects like concert series, the project funding programs organised by Berlin’s districts are also worth looking into. Impuls neue Musik funds projects supporting the exchange between musicians based in Germany, Switzerland, and France. Kulturförderpunkt Berlin is the city’s main free consultation service to help with funding applications and identifying suitable funding programs.
