Live Event for Spanish-Speaking Artists and Culture Makers

Curated by Laia Ribera Cañénguez

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

Over the course of a conversation, Maque Pereyra (performer, dancer and DJ) and Laia Ribera Cañénguez (performing artist) will discuss their personal experiences in the independent performing arts community: what challenges, strategies and perspectives have they encountered? Aranzazu Vállez Zamarro (Karne Kunst) will report on the bureaucratic part of working as an independent artist: tax number, KSK, income tax declaration, and more. Alejandra Atalah (LakBerlin) will give us information about funding opportunities, links to existing resources and networks as well as tips for applications. At the end of the evening there will be time for exchanges and networking between all participants.

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.
