Forecast – International platform for pioneering ideas : Audacious Minds
Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), Berlin, Germany Deadline: 30 November 2016
The call for proposals for Forecast’s second edition has just started. Until November 30, 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 toward bringing their projects to fruition, and to present them to the public.
Forecast transcends the boundaries of disciplines and genres to provide insight into creative production processes, and makes space for the questions on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers..
For each edition, Forecast selects six mentors of various disciplines who offer interested participants their expertise in specifying and realizing their pioneering project ideas. The following mentors are participating in the current edition of Forecast in 2016/2017: 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 realization. The outcome of these collaborations will be presented October 16–21, 2017, at the Forecast Festival at the HKW.
