Kultur | lx - Arts Council Luxembourg

Kultur | lx – Arts Council Luxembourg runs schemes and programmes, and helps Luxembourg to make its presence felt at international events. Kultur | lx is also taking over responsibility for any calls for proposals and applications that could be of interest to the sector.

Kultur | lx was created in July 2020 as an initiative of the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture. The establishment of this new tool for the support, promotion and development of the Luxembourgish cultural scene is the result of a broad consultation with the creative sector.

Setting up this new institution is part of the Luxembourg government’s cultural development plan, known as “Kulturentwécklungsplang 2018–2028”. The operations of Kultur | lx revolve around three core strategies:

  • Stimulating the career development of Luxembourgish creatives
  • Supporting and encouraging the dissemination of artistic creation
  • Boosting the impact and promotion of artistic creations in and outside of Luxembourg

Kultur | lx has already integrated under its roof some existing initiatives and missions of the sector, such as those of music: LX and Reading Luxembourg, and is working on developing others. In the medium and long term, Kultur | lx aims to become the preferred point of contact for the support and promotion of professionals from the following sectors: architecture, design and crafts; multimedia and digital arts; visual arts; literature and publishing; music; and performing arts.
