Cultural Promotion

Cultural Promotion

The subject area of culture has a high priority in Waldeck-Frankenberg. The district has set itself the goal of preserving cultural affairs and the history of the district as a cultural asset. It offers consultations and working groups on questions of local and regional culture, documents cultural values and handles relevant inquiries or requests for information.

  • Cultural Promotion

    The district is also active in the area of material cultural promotion. This ranges from the promotion of projects, singing societies, theater groups or the district music school association to the preservation of cultural assets, support for concert series, the acquisition of musical instruments, the purchase of works by local artists for the collection of the district hall, as well as to non-material cultural promotion in the form of consulting, networking and exchange.

  • Culture Award

    In order to promote cultural creativity, the district offers a cultural award at regular intervals - from the call for entries, to the preparation of jury meetings, to the preparation of resolutions for the district committee. The award is presented to cultural workers who have rendered outstanding services in the form of a ceremony. A list of previous award winners can be found here.

    In 2021, the prize will be awarded for the 20th time. It serves to promote cultural forces at district level and is divided into a main prize worth up to 2,500 euros and a youth prize worth up to 500 euros. Individuals, groups of people, clubs and associations are now invited to submit proposals for the Culture Prize and the Youth Culture Prize. Self-applications are also possible. Nominations can be made by individuals or groups of individuals who are exceptionally active in the cultural field in the district or in relation to the district. The nomination should be accompanied by documents expressing the special, exemplary commitment to be honored, such as photos, offprints, press reports.

    Proposals for potential 2023 award recipients will be accepted through May 31 at email:
