Donate to Hanseatische Materialverwaltung, a non-profit fund for props, sets and materials, and thereby support Hamburg's cultural and artistic scene.

Hanseatische Materialverwaltung is the focal point of materials and ideas in Hamburg. We provide cultural venues, public schools, universities, artists and associations with the props, sets, furniture and materials they need to realise their creative, social and ecological projects. We’re a pool for everybody. Whether not-profit, private or commercial – everyone is welcome.
After every film shoot, after every event and every trade fair in Hamburg tons of valuable materials of any kind are – apart from actual rubbish – being chucked into containers on a daily basis. Everyone working in the business knows that this is a costly, environmentally harmful and a definitely absurd procedure. Because there is at the same time an urgent need for exactly those things and materials for creative projects such as theatre sets for schools, temporary architectures, material-orientated vocation promotion, scenery for artistic films or tree houses for kindergartens. 
HMV collects those incidental materials and objects in a central warehouse, thus creating an open fund, through which new ideas can be realised. 
We don't get funding from the city anymore and we depend on donations to keep on providing other non-profit organisations with very low priced materials (and free consultation) for their projects.
