From May 4th to July 15th, 2022, cultural professionals from Frankfurt were invited to take part in an online survey on the future of the city’s cultural landscape. This enabled Frankfurt’s creative artists and other cultural professionals to participate in the Kulturentwicklungsplanung (cultural development planning) process even before the participation phase. The survey was aimed exclusively at professionals working in Frankfurt and the data is currently being viewed and evaluated. Once completed, we will make the results available here online.
In the coming weeks, the mobile information and survey format “kep.lab” will take place at various locations in Frankfurt’s public spaces. Frankfurt’s citizens and cultural professionals will be able to find out about the current status and the next steps of the two-year planning and participation process and to contribute their ideas and wishes for the future of Frankfurt’s cultural landscape. In addition to information on the individual formats of Frankfurt’s cultural development planning and the opportunity to participate, interested citizens can expect a seasonal gastronomic offer as well as various DJ sets at the open-air events.

All cultural professionals from Frankfurt and interested citizens are cordially invited to this series of events! We would be very happy to welcome you there and to get into conversation with you!
The participation phase of the cultural development planning will begin with a public kick-off event on November 15, 2022. In the spirit of a town hall meeting, the kick-off event is aimed at all interested citizens as well as all cultural professionals of the city. At the kick-off event, the topics of the workshops of the participation phase will be presented and the dates of the individual formats will be announced. In addition, there will be various opportunities for direct participation in the process and networking.
In the theme-centred workshops of the participation phase, current challenges facing the cultural life of Frankfurt am Main are discussed and proposals for measures are jointly developed. The topics for the workshops will be selected on the basis of the results of the survey phase. All cultural professionals based in Frankfurt can participate in these workshops and contribute their expertise and ideas to the process. The proposals for measures developed in the individual workshop formats will then be passed on to the steering committee of the cultural development planning for consultation and prioritisation.
