The Power of the Arts


We believe in the Power of the Arts. That is why The Power of the Arts promotes initiatives and institutions that advocate for an open society. Prizes are awarded to projects and concepts – in the categories music, theatre, art, dance, literature, film and applied arts – that use culture to advocate for social and cultural equality and take down barriers in order to foster understanding among all people. The Power of the Arts is directed at projects that work for vocational and social inclusion and strengthen educational and economic opportunity.


The Power of the Arts is an initiative from Philip Morris GmbH. Eligibility is open to all non-profit institutions or initiatives in Germany that understand how to leverage the power of the arts to the benefit of an open society. Each year, winning projects receive support in the amount of 50,000 euros each. An independent jury comprised of experts from fields in art, culture and science selects the projects.
