The Senate of Berlin will provide financial assistance to artists

a Week after the Minister of culture of Germany Monica Gruetters said the government will assist the companies in the field of art, became known shapes and volumes of this help. March 20 has appeared the information that the Berlin Senate (the official name of the regional government of land Berlin. — AI.) will provide up to $320 million to support self-employed artists, businesses, art and culture and other areas of business suffering from quarantine and other restrictive measures in the spread of the virus COVID-19. Financial aid is available in the form of grants of €5 thousand self-employed artists and small businesses in the sphere of culture (they will be allocated around €100 million). In addition, approximately €300 million of budget funds will be allocated in the form of loans to retailers, hotels, restaurants and cultural industries. If these measures will not suffice, the government said it was ready to allocate an additional €200 million for this purpose.

Together with the artists (who are only in Berlin there are about 8 thousand) for grant assistance in the amount of €5 thousand can count small (up to 5 people in the state) enterprises in the sphere of sport, tourism and retail trade. Assistance package for businesses with five to 250 employees, covers restaurants, hotels, Nightclubs and other entertainment venues, as well as enterprises in the sphere of culture and art, including the gallery.

"Berlin is alive and thriving thanks to the dedication and commitment of its employees in all areas of culture, — said the Senator in charge of this area, Klaus Lederer. — Cancel countless cultural events will threaten the existence of many of them." Recall that, according to legend, the Prime Minister-министр of great Britain Winston Churchill, not finding in the proposed budget of the military 1940 expenditure on culture, said: "If there is no culture — during that time she fights?"
