Programmes & Projects

Our "Programmes & Projects" section is divided into seven artistic areas and contains all of the Foundation’s initiated programmes, funds and model projects, as well as diverse projects financed through General Project Funding.

Each artistic area includes a separate archive containing a majority of the programmes and projects which have now concluded.
