Support of the cultural development planning in Leipzig

ICG supported the City of Leipzig’s cultural development planning. Together with the city administration a guiding principles plan was established according to a lean planning approach. This approach enabled a focus on cultural polity key questions and created the preliminaries for intensive public discussions of cultural policy objectives. At the end of the planning process a concise guiding principles paper was created which was passed in the city’s councils. Together with the counselors established for the cultural development planning, a ranking for the city’s cultural institutions was worked out which resulted in lively and controversial discussions in Leipzig’s cultural community.
