Background

For many years, the City of Luxembourg has been actively supporting cultural creation and activities by Luxembourg artists, creators, non-profit associations and businesses, through financial contributions, subsidies and logistical support.

Eligible individuals, associations and projects

  • Visual arts, architecture, design and crafts
  • Dance
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Multidisciplinary projects
  • Theatre and live performances
  • Circus and street art
  • Audiovisual creation, independent cinema
  • Heritage, history, folk traditions
  • Sociocultural

Deadline for applications

Applications for aid for cultural projects must be submitted to the City of Luxembourg at least six months prior to the scheduled start date.

Application and procedure

To enable the municipal authorities to process applications in as timely and equitable a manner as possible, organisers of cultural projects wishing to apply for aid from the City are asked to fill in the form below.

The completed form will be sent to the applicant's email address. It must then be signed and returned to the City's Coordination culturelle (Cultural Coordination Unit), either by post or email to coordinationculturelle@vdl.lu

Applicants are advised that only duly completed forms submitted by the specified deadline will be considered. After examining the application, the City of Luxembourg reserves the right to grant or deny aid under the conditions defined by the administration.
