Our partners from Forecast are looking for talented fellows to join their exciting 2019 mentoring program.
Forecast encourages interdisciplinary exchange and public discussion on the ideas of the future. Until March 1, 2019, creative minds from anywhere in the world working in various disciplines can submit their proposals. Eighteen applicants will then be invited to Berlin to discuss their ideas and present them at the Radialsystem during the Forecast Forum, July 1–7, 2019. At the end of the Forecast Forum, each of the six mentors then selects one concept to accompany to its realization. The outcomes of these collaborations would then be presented at the Forecast Festival, taking place at the Radialsystem March 30–April 5, 2020.
For each edition, Forecast selects six mentors of various disciplines who offer interested participants their expertise in specifying and realizing their pioneering project ideas. The following mentors are participating in the fourth edition of Forecast: visual artist Candice Breitz (ZA), artist and internet activist Paolo Cirio (IT), musician Okkyung Lee (KR), cartoonist Anders Nilsen (US), radio reporter Joe Richman (US), and conceptual designer Jerszy Seymour (UK/CA).
As an international platform for knowledge transfer, Forecast offers artists and creative thinkers from anywhere in the world the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. Forecast transcends neatly defined disciplines and genres to provide insight into creative production processes, and carve out space for the questions on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers.
