Forecast Festival

#Prototyping
12 Oct - 13 Oct 2018
18.00
Forecast Platform, Berlin, DE
Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10, Berlin, Germany

The Forecast platform takes place in three stages, bringing together young architects chosen from the Future Architecture applications with artists from other disciplines, and “merging” them in a practical process of prototyping. Forecast invited pioneers from various disciplines to develop forms of realizing their intended project ideas, alongside six inspiring mentors that accompany the process of conceptualizing, further developing and producing a prototypical form. Artists applied to collaborate with one of the mentors by submitting their own concept, and a selection of five each were be invited to the first development phase during the Forecast Forum at HKW in Berlin, 11–12 May 2018. 

Each mentor selected one of the proposals to bring to fruition over the following six months. The Forecast Festival will now offer insight into pioneering ideas in the fields of design, music, art, radio, and film. Six young creative visionaries from all continents will bring their concepts to life in concerts, performances, installations and conversations. Six renowned experts have supported these projects' development and encouraged their mentees to break boundaries in terms of working methods and formats.

The third edition of the Forecast Festival thus presents six pioneering projects created and developed by emerging practitioners along with their mentors.
