Terms of payment

The support will be paid on submission of invoices and a report no later than 3 months after the end of the project. Without the final breakdown of expenses, the Coordinators of Kultur | lx may block payment of the support. However, some expenses, too significant to be advanced by the artist or the structure, may be invoiced directly to Kultur | lx on the basis of an estimate jointly accepted by the project initiator and Kultur | lx.

The award of the funding will be voided if the project in respect of which the funding was awarded does not take place by the deadline that the organisation set at the time when the funding was awarded. The same applies in the event that one of the conditions applicable to the award of the funding is no longer being met, or that the funding was awarded on the basis of inaccurate or incomplete information.

Should the funding be voided, the organisation will be entitled to reimbursement of any payments already made. The organisation may, on an exceptional basis, waive its right to reimbursement upon the submission of a written request setting out the reasons, which must be outside the control of the beneficiary of the funding, why the project did not take place and their direct causal link with the fact that it did not take place.

Mention of Kultur | lx

The beneficiary of the support must include the Kultur | lx logo on its communication materials, with the statement “With the support of Kultur | lx – Arts Council Luxembourg”.
