About this opportunity
As an international mentorship program with annual editions, Forecast offers artists and creative thinkers from anywhere in the world the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. For each edition, Forecast selects six mentors from various disciplines who offer selected participants their expertise in specifying and realizing project ideas.
If you are chosen as a mentee, you will take part in a work-stay with your mentor at a partner institution. As part of the work-stay, you and the mentor would potentially host a public event or a workshop at the partner institution to present your work within the framework of Forecast.
If a mentor selects your proposal and you participate as a nominee at the Forecast Forum in July-August 2024, you will receive a fee of €2000, which includes the production cost of your presentation.
Travel and accommodation for participants at the Forecast Forum in Berlin is granted by Forecast/Skills etc. Please note that if you apply as a duo or collective, Forecast will cover travel and accommodation for only one member. Also If your proposal is subsequently chosen as one of the six mentee projects to be showcased at the Forecast Festival in March 2025, you will receive an artist fee of €6,000 and a production budget for realizing your project, up to €8,000.
Anyone from anywhere who is working creatively in a field that they consider connected with one of the mentors in this year’s edition, or in related practices. We recommend looking at the mentors’ statements and familiarizing yourself with their work before deciding whether to apply, and with what project. After all, you and the mentor would work together for several months if you are selected, so you should have an idea of what they would be able to provide in their mentorship role.
Forecast only accepts applications in English. Furthermore, all public events and communication take place in English.
