Wanderlust is an application-based fund that finances theatre partnership and exchange for two to three seasons. In the first year, the theatres could exchange artistic personnel. In the second, they might choose to host a guest production from their partner theatre. And in the third year, the theatres could organize a co-production to be performed at both locations. The partner theatres are free to organize the details of their working arrangement themselves according to their interests and capacities. The goal is to involve as many members of each theatre in the cooperative venture as possible.
The Federal Cultural Foundation can award a maximum of 150,000 euro per partnership. The applying theatre or third-party sponsors must finance at least 25% of the entire cost of the project. The fund runs for five years, within which time theatres have two opportunities to apply for funding.
