Forecast 2019

Frist: Freitag, 01. März 2019

As an international platform for knowledge transfer, Forecast offers artists and creative thinkers from anywhere in the world the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition.

For this edition, Forecast has selected six mentors, all accomplished in their respective fields: visual artist Candice Breitz (ZA),artist and internet activist Paolo Cirio (IT), musician Okkyung Lee (KR), cartoonist Anders Nilsen (US), radio reporter Joe Richman (US), and conceptual designer Jerszy Seymour (UK/CA).

Applicants should submit proposals according to which mentor they would want to work with.

The deadline for applications is March 1, at 11:59pm CET. The mentors will then carefully review all proposals and invite three candidates each. The candidates will present their ideas at the Forecast Forum in Berlin, taking place July 1–7, 2019. At the conclusion of the Forum, six mentees will be chosen, one in each field, to develop their ideas further with their mentors.

The six mentees will receive a production budget and artist fee, and will have nine months to bring their ideas to fruition. In addition to independent, ongoing exchanges with their mentor, this period will also include a one-on-one workshop with the mentor at one of six hosting partner institutions.
