Getting Started as a Transnational Artist in Berlin

With Maria Buzhor (dramaturg, performer, music theater collective Hauen&Stechen)

How can you get your foot in the door in the independent performing arts community as an international artist? How do you manage the challenges of freelance work and the bureaucracy? How do you deal with the stress that exile and orientation bring? What funding opportunities exist in general and which ones exist especially for artists from Ukraine? Where can you find support for visa questions, questions about insurance and what exactly is the KSK (Künstlersozialkasse, the German public social insurance fund for artists)? Who can you turn to when you encounter experiences of discrimination? Our host Maria Buzhor will share her experiences as an international artist with a Ukrainian background and welcome the participants with open round of exchange dealing with questions about getting started in Berlin.

In Ukrainian, Russian and English spoken language.
