About us

OSTPOL – which stands for “East Pole” – is located in Leipzig. It was established in 2008 as a non-profit association for promoting international cultural projects.


OSTPOL connects artistic initiatives originating in Leipzig with international partners and institutions. This cooperation forms an interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue that promotes the creative process and international understanding. Special focus is placed on supporting young and upcoming talent.


The members of OSTPOL are artists themselves who are active in different sections or represent organisations in the public sector, or act as presenters and organizers of cultural events – and much more…


The projects supported by OSTPOL are either initiated by its members or brought to its notice by others who approach the organisation on their own initiative.


Starting from its base in Leipzig, OSTPOL is both locally and internationally active, the objective being to establish networks and bring together like-minded people all over the world.
