We warmly invite all of you to attend our summer party! And before this, we’ve put together an association meeting with work on the bylaws, information and insight from 10 years of PAP Berlin as well as a celebration. We will be the guests of Hotel Continental – Art Space in Exile, where artists and culture makers in exile from Ukraine and other countries have found a platform and a place to work since June of 2022.

In the third part of this thematic series on working in a collective, we will look at stress factors and the delicate question of leadership. How do you organize yourself within a team, make decisions and ensure a flow of communication without drowning in a sea of email? How do you avoid communication becoming something that eats up time and instead ensure that it remains/will be efficient and goal-oriented? Is coordination a contagious form of leadership and, if so: what do we think about that?

Guest performances or other artistic activities outside of Germany are increasingly becoming the norm. What administrative regulations have to be kept in mind when working in other countries? In this seminar, it will be explained how submitting an invoice takes place within an international context, what needs to be kept in mind regarding value-added tax, input tax, et cetera and how one coordinates the social insurance in Europe and (self-) delegation with an A1 certificate.

Round Table
What kinds of spaces do productions in the field of contemporary circus need? When on the search for locations for performances, circus artists often come up against the preconceptions that revolve around flying artists, sawdust and horse droppings – which only seldom have to do with the reality of contemporary circus. In this round table event, the focus is placed on bringing independent performance venues into conversation with contemporary circus artists, allowing them to get to know each other and get excited about working together in the future.

Performing Arts Programm Berlin

With the Performing Arts Program, LAFT Berlin has created an effective instrument for the infrastructural strengthening, professionalization and networking of Berlin‘s independent performing arts community.
No matter whether we are talking about a symposium or a cooperation event, one questions is always at the forefront of the work of the Berlin Performing Arts Program: what and how can we learn from each other and how can we then integrate it sustainably within our own work?
