The 10th Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts Community

The 10th Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts Community

The Industry Get-Together is commemorating its 10-year anniversary! A lot has happened in the last decade: the Performing Arts Program of LAFT Berlin was created and established itself as a platform to strengthen the independent performing arts in Berlin. LAFT Berlin has developed from a purely voluntary association into a sought-after project partner. The Industry Get-Together has continuously provided space for exchange, networking and specific engagement by and for the independent performing arts community. Despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic, exchange formats have been able to be further developed in the last two years and realized as hybrid or digital events.
 
The development of the Industry Get-Together has always reflected the general developments and improvements in the independent performing arts community and (we hope) also positively influenced it. On the occasion of the 10th Industry Get-Together and the 10-year anniversary of the Berlin Performing Arts Program, we would like to conduct an evaluation of the outcomes, effects and results of our work and share the findings publicly.
 
No matter whether we are talking about current discourses in cultural policy, practical knowledge about touring and international networking, specific advisement and exchange formats, questions about the audience, about communication formats or about cultural journalism – In this 10th year, we want to come together with you, lift our glasses, cheer, but also keep going. What do the performing arts need and what are old and new needs of the independent performing arts community? What do things look like in the medium term and how do we move on from here? What forms of coming together do we desire for the next 10 years?
 
We look forward to being the guests of the new Theater Strahl am Ostkreuz with the 10th Industry Get-Together of the Independent Performing Arts Community.
We will let you know about the options for registering and making contributions to the schedule of programming in the near future.
