Open call: Forecast is looking for pioneers
The call for proposals for Forecast’s second edition has started. Until 30 November, pioneers from anywhere in the world working in various disciplines may submit their project ideas.
Selected participants will have the chance to work with accomplished mentors towards bringing their projects to fruition, and to present them to the public.
Following its first edition in 2015–16, Forecast has sought out curator Hou Hanru (CHN), designer Heather Martin (GB), video artist Bjørn Melhus (DE/NOR), architect Philippe Rahm (CH), choreographer Richard Siegal (USA) and composer Jennifer Walshe (IRL) as this edition’s mentors.
Forecast will invite 30 applicants to discuss their ideas and present them to the public at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin during the Forecast Forum from March 27 to April 1, 2017. At the end of the Forecast Forum, each of the six mentors will select one concept to accompany to its realisation. The outcome of these collaborations will be presented October 16–21, 2017, at the Forecast Festival at the HKW.
You can find the application form here. Submit your project idea by 30 November.
