Live Event for Arabic-Speaking Artists and Culture Makers

Curated by Rabih Beaini

We are warmly inviting Arabic-speaking artists and culture makers to an information and networking day as part of the nationwide cooperation project "Guides to the Independent Arts Communities".

The live event for Arabic-speaking artists and culture makers will deal with different aspects of making music: publications, managing a label, working together with other artists. It will deal with everyday problems, such as managing one’s own finances and paperwork as well as the basic steps for finishing a production and presenting it on a professional level. It will look at promoting one’s own work to earning a living working in an artistic field. Rabih Beaini (guide and music producer) will discuss all of this with his guests Ziad Fayed (sound engineer, organizer of music events) and Julia Schmitt (culture manager).

The diverse intercultural schedule of events for the information and networking day will include three live events (in Arabic, in French and in Spanish) and will be curated by the transnational guides Rabih Beaini (Lebanese music producer), Charlotte Bomy (French culture maker), Steve Mekoudja (Camerooniann writer and musician) and Laia Ribera Cañénguez, (Salvadorian writer, performer and theater educator). 

The three live events will be organized by Music Pool Berlin and inm – initiative neue musik berlin e.V.
