Shape the Future: Apply Today

Open Call15 Nov 2017

How should the future look?
The call for proposals for the third edition of Forecast platform is now open. Deadline for submissions is 20 December.

The Forecast process is one of mutual engagement, where mentees from any country, background, and discipline can use their imaginations to tackle pressing questions.

Six mentors, leaders in their respective fields, will support these innovators: museum director Tulga Beyerle (AUT), curator David Elliott (UK), video artist Omer Fast (ISR/GER), musician Holly Herndon (USA), artist Laura Lima (BRA) and curator and producer Peter Meanwell (UK/NOR). All six mentors are eager to exchange ideas, and welcome innovative minds with fresh answers to tomorrow’s questions.

After applications close on 20 December, 2017, the mentors will carefully review all the proposals and each invite five applicants to present their ideas at the Forecast Forum at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin 7–13 May 2018. Six mentees will be chosen to develop their ideas further with their mentors, before showcasing their results at the Forecast Festival at the HKW 12–13 October 2018.
