The NRW-Forum Düsseldorf is reinventing itself.

And that's why we need you.

We want to make the NRW-Forum fit for the future. Help shape a house of pop culture: Events, exhibitions, design, the café, communication - simply everything can and should be rethought!

We invited seven people to become NRW-Forum Friends (NEFOs for short) and develop ideas for this together with us.


You will advise and support us in developing ideas for the NRW Forum of the future.


You have the chance to turn the future NRW Forum into your place and actively help shape it. You will receive financial compensation for your work on the project. As a thank you, you will also receive free admission to all exhibitions at the Kunstpalast and NRW-Forum for one year as well as exclusive invitations to special events.


Over a period of 12 months, we will meet approximately every six weeks in the evening at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf with the artistic director Alain Bieber, the curator Judith Winterhager and other members of the museum team. The first meeting took place on 21 March.


You had the opportunity to apply online. The Open Call is now closed with over 400 applicants and we are very pleased about the great interest. We are currently in dialogue with the 7 NEFOs.
