The Wiesbaden Urban Culture Work Group is the merger of more than 30 free culture carriers, initiatives and societies. It is a work group active on a situational basis in accordance with the wishes of all members. It was founded in 2003 on the occasion of the announcement of major cuts in the city's cultural budget. Since then, the Working Group has intervened repeatedly with statements and actions in the cultural-political discussion. In the debate on the creation of a City Museum in Wiesbaden end of 2014 the work group urged the cultural politicians and city administration to elaborate a Cultural Development Plan as a prerequisite for answering the question how the project City Museum could be financed. The cultural development in the city and thus the future of cultural funding is and remains a crucial issue.
