HAP - across hesse


The project is supported by:

HAP - across hesse

next Funding period: 01.03.2025-28.02.2027

HAP across Hesse is primarily adressed to creative people who live and work in Hesse outside of Frankfurt am Main. The aim is to support artists, collectives and studio communities located primarily in northern and eastern Hesse. This includes artists with spaces in rural areas, but also studios that are maintained or newly occupied in cities such as Offenbach, Kassel, Gießen or Fulda. For artists living and working in Frankfurt, the HAP Studio Programme is a good option.

The subsidy is granted in two ways: 

  • The amount of the subsidy depends on the number of square meters, but a maximum of 50% of the standard local basic rent is covered. 
  • A scholarship of 150 euros per month is paid regardless of the size and basic rent of the workspace. 

Artists supported by HAP across Hesse are invited to participate in events of the HAP Mentoring Programme in Frankfurt. The support is limited to two years, subsequent applications are possible. The funding is awarded by a external jury of experts.
