The call for ideas for Forecast’s seventh edition
Deadline: 27 Feb 2022
Artistic practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields, anywhere in the world, are encouraged to apply to Forecast's international mentorship program with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of this edition’s mentors and their unique approach to material and knowledge production.
Send us your project proposal for the chance to work with one of the following mentors: investigative journalist Alia Ibrahim (LB), artist
Ana Prvački (RS/RO), comedian Daliso Chaponda (MW), choreographer Florentina Holzinger (AT), artist and filmmaker
Laura Huertas Millán (FR/CO), and vocalist Rully Shabara (ID).
The mentors in Forecast’s 2022–23 edition engage with practices defined by immediate encounters, either with the work’s subject matter or audience. In the current climate of uncertainty and social distancing, Forecast seeks to define audacious paths forward for practices that thrive and rely on corporeal, unmediated situations.
Find out more about each mentor’s field of expertise and what they are looking for in a potential mentee on our website.
The deadline for applications is February 27, at 11:59pm CET.
The selection process is two-tiered. First, the mentors carefully review all proposals and invite three candidates each to workshop with the mentor and present their ideas at the Forecast Forum in Berlin, taking place in July 2022. All eighteen nominees receive an artist fee for their participation in the Forum. Following the Forum, each mentor will select one mentee.
Each of the six mentees will receive a production budget and a licensing and artist fee, and will have several months to produce their project with the mentor’s support. In addition to ongoing exchanges, this period also includes a one-on-one work-stay with the mentor at an international partner institution.
The final productions will be presented to the public at the Forecast Festival in March 2023. The Forum and the Festival both take place at radialsystem, Berlin.
