Forecast | creative mentoring collaboration programme - apply now


Forecast is a novel collaboration platform that promotes international emerging talents, taking place in 2015/16 at HKW – Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. Artists, curators, designers, composers, photographers, performers or architects from all over the world are invited to collaborate with one of six renowned mentors.

Participants may propose, realize and showcase their project idea at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt - House of World Cultures (HKW) in 2015/16.

You can apply with your project idea to collaborate with one of six renowned Forecast mentors. These mentors are ready to give any assistance needed: all of them being inspiring, open-minded and experienced in various fields of creative production. Work with your mentor and find your way to design the future.

To be a part of Forecast, submit your application until March 31st.

In August 2015 (28th – 30th) each mentor will gather five of the applicants for the public Forecast Forum at HKW in Berlin. As a participant you present your project idea and exchange thoughts. You will get feedback from your mentor as well as from artists and progressive thinkers from all over the world, and you will broaden your network. These three days of workshops and presentations will form the matrix for developing and enhancing your project.

The six best projects will be awarded an extended one-on-one-collaboration: From September to February 2016, you – as one of the six – will have the chance to work closely with your personal mentor. You will establish a productive relationship and benefit from this unique form of empowerment. Each tandem will find their own way to collaborate and to promote the project.

In February 2016 (26th – 28th), the six tandems present their individual projects during the Forecast Festival at HKW: performances, presentations or installations of any format will be showcased to the public.
