Application Workshop [Here Comes A Project]

With Katharina von Wilcke (curator, producer, adviser), Christin Eckart (the Berlin Performing Arts Program) and Guests

January 15 to 17, 2024, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm

To start off the new year, we are offering our three-day workshop about making applications for funding in an English-language version: on the first day, we will dedicate ourselves together to the writing of comprehensible concepts and project descriptions. We will concentrate on how to establish a structure for the contents, practice using a variety of text tools and discuss questions of style together and consider how moving from one language to another can best be accomplished. On the second day, we will translate the concepts into numbers and attempt to create realistic budgets and financing plans with fair budgets. On the third day, the focus will be placed on self-presentations and project presentations: How do I communicate my work to others in an impressive manner during quick encounters in the lobbies of theaters? How can I successfully talk about my project with those responsible for programming performance venues? What does a convincing pitch contain? In addition, we are also looking forward to closing things out with a surprise guest who will provide us with insight from the perspective of those responsible for programming performance venues. This workshop is intended for transnational artists whose first language is not German and who can communicate confidently in English spoken language.

In English spoken language, it is possible to ask questions and make comments using Portuguese spoken language and English spoken language.
