The WIENWOCHE artistic direction and management team will subsequently make their selection. All decisions concerning the programme are made without recourse to legal proceedings.

    Who will select the projects?

    The selection process involves:
    WIENWOCHE artistic direction and management team
    The Board of the Association for Advancing the Use of Urban Space
    An independent advisory committee (members will be announced)

    What funding is available for the projects?

    There is a total production budget of approximately 170,000 Euro available for the festival (including work groups, projects that will be selected through Open Call, commissioned projects and international guests).
    From the April 1, 2017 onwards, participants will get support from WIENWOCHE's team and collaborators from various sectors such as project development (time plan, conceptual questions), public relations, partly production, text editing and documentation.

    Grants from other sources will not be grounds for disqualification.
