30. März 2021 –
With the new digital series “MOVE IT”, Kulturförderpunkt Berlin focusses on artistic production, collaboration, and exchange in an international and global context. In cooperation with touring artists we tackle the different fields that are activated when it comes to international mobility of artists and cultural professionals: networking and building partnerships, funding, the value of working abroad as an artist, and more.
In the upcoming sessions of “MOVE IT” we introduce funding programs and invite experienced artists, cultural organisations, and networks to share their stories and shed light on the potential of going international. Thus, artists and cultural practitioners will receive an initial overview of funding opportunities and insights into the practical implementation of projects with partners abroad.
#1 (Digital) Networking
Our first edition of “MOVE IT” is dedicated to a challenge that already existed before the Corona crisis, but has become more prominent as a result of it: How to network internationally? An international network is particularly relevant for artists and cultural professionals who aspire to transcultural, cross-border, or international projects. In this edition we present different approaches when it comes to “(Digital) Networking” – approaches, that open up solutions on how to tackle this issue especially in a situation that enforces digital encounters.
Join us online if you want to “MOVE IT”!
