The Application

The KRACH programme will not select its participants on a whim. We want to invite those projects to join us, that are best suited for Chemnitz. That is why we must be able to compare the submitted ideas. But that shouldn’t stop you writing your application on a coaster, sending a message in a bottle, making a video or simply handing in a conventional text. Any form of application, no matter how creative or conventional it may be, is welcome. Please provide us with some information about you and your project, so that we can match your project with our potential and compare the applications. After all, we want to find out how well your idea fits the City of Chemnitz.


The programme is foremost aimed at makers, who have an innovative idea for which they need adequate space. We have several free rooms. Together we want to enliven them, set them up with projects and decorate them with ideas. The creative business should not exist any longer than four years by the end of the tender submission period.


From all submissions, an international jury will select the most innovative projects. The following evaluation criteria and points apply:

  • Innovation and development potential
  • Technical feasibility, professionalism, economic sustainability and social interest
  • Skills of the people involved in the project
  • Relation to the city and district
  • Possible partners for collaboration and ideas for synergies Apart from the jury, the crowd will select another awardee.


The space donors want to learn from the space receivers. Therefore, the awardees will write an annual report for three years. This report must contain a short project outline and the overall development of the project. They will be collected and published as a final report of all awardees of the respective year and will be presented at a networking event.


Send an email until January the 31st 2018 with your application documents:

  • Project outline / description of project plan (max. 2 pages A4)
  • Financial plan
  • CV and personal informations
  • Declaration of 3 favorite spaces

The space donors look forward to meeting you even before application and are happy to show visitors their city.
