Guides to Berlin’s Independent Arts Community

Guides to Berlin’s Independent Arts Community is a cooperation between the Performing Arts Program of LAFT Berlin with the advisement structures Schreiben & leben of Lettrétage (literature advisement program), Music Pool Berlin and Künstler*innenberatung (artist advisement program) im Kulturwerk des bbk berlin GmbH.

The goal of the program is to more effectively connect the existing information, advisement and qualification opportunities as well as the effective networking of the independent arts community with regional art communities in Berlin through a multilingual offering of advisement opportunities, specific information events and the creation and distribution of a multilingual print brochure about existing opportunities in Berlin. This is intended to support everyone interested in working in Berlin’s independent arts community and needs information about the community, network and freelance opportunities within the respective artistic genre.
The guides are:

  • Frederika Tsai, Chinese
  • Marwa Almokbel, Syrian-Arabic
  • Anastasia Gorokhova, Russian
  • Urszula Heuwinkel, Polish
  • Defne Sahin, Turkish
  • Charlotte Bomy & Steve Mekoudja, French

The project Guides to Berlin’s Independent Arts Community is funded by the program Cosmopolitan Berlin 2019 – Advisement, Support and Networking for International Artists, Media Professionals and Culture Makers of Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
