Aufbauwerk Region Leipzig GmbH
Aufbauwerk Region Leipzig GmbH is a joint project agency of the City of Leipzig and the districts of Leipzig and Mittelsachsen (all NUTS III public authorities) that has been created specifically for the acquisation of European funding and for the support of the region’s local public authorities’ participation in European programmes. The organisation is a public-equivalent body with a mission to promote regional development for an area of more than 1 million inhabitants and to make European best practises available to public actors and stakeholders from the region and to allow good practises brought forward by the region’s institutions be shared with other regions. Through its participation as lead applicant, partner or subcontractor in numerous EU projects, Aufbauwerk has a huge expertise in transnational projects. The participation in EU projects takes place on behalf of its public shareholders. Through its board, the agency is well connected to different levels of government.
The five-storey, 20.000 m2 building HALLE 14 is situated in the area of the former Leipzig Cotton Spinning Mill. Since the beginning of the 1990ies, artists, gallerists and other creatives have built a productive and lively community.
The restoration of HALLE 14 is part of developing it into an art centre with a wide variety of projects and activities connected to contemporary art.
