Additional money from meckPom government?

O Owl Public Seen by 55

I’ve read in the Zeit magazine that there is a emergency funding for events in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Do we already have more information about that? It is possible that it is meant only for associations located there ...

Und das Finanzministerium kündigte schon vor Monaten einen Hilfsfond an, der Kosten übernehmen will, falls eine Veranstaltung wegen der Pandemie ausfallen muss. Das würde die Situation der Festivals erleichtern. "Aber noch ist nicht klar, ob und wann dieser Fond überhaupt kommt", sagt Seetge. Nur in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern gibt es bereits so einen Hilfsfond, von dem Festivals wie die Fusion profitieren.

And the Ministry of Finance announced months ago that it would set up an aid fund to cover costs if an event had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. That would ease the situation for festivals. "But it's not yet clear if and when this fund will come at all," says Seetge. Only in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania does such an aid fund already exist, from which festivals like Fusion benefit.
