Symposia

Annual symposia are dedicated to topics involving changes which affect all members of the independent performing arts community. These changes are analyzed and negotiated with experts. Following this, strategies and recommendations for action are developed over the course of mutual exchange.

Funding the Arts vs. Funding the Creative Economy – A (Late) Attempt at Mediation

Friday, June 16, 2017, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Venue:
Alte Münze, Molkenmarkt 2, Mitte, 10179 Berlin (PAF-Festival Center)

We do not want to use any arts funding to fund projects in the creative economy, but are we betraying art if we apply for trade fair funding in order to attend a festival? Which funding instruments for business exist that could be of interest to the members and artists of the independent performing arts community and what needs exist? The symposium “Funding the Arts vs. Funding for the Creative Economy – A (Late) Mediation Attempt” attempts to foster an open conversation about unclarified terminology.
