We remain DIGITAL!

From now until the end of our summer break, August 2, 2020, we will remain in our home offices and are planning very few public events. We will, however, continue to offer a great deal of digital content – including individual advisement sessions, information events and symposia! You can always find our up-to-date schedule of events on our homepage.

You can read more about about current developments in the LAFT Newsletter:

The Berlin Performing Arts Programm

With the Performing Arts Program, LAFT Berlin has created an effective instrument for the infrastructural strengthening, professionalization and networking of Berlin‘s independent performing arts community. The goals are to increase and consolidate the visibility of artistic work within the creative hub of Berlin, the opening of the independent performing arts community for new audience members, bundling and passing on knowledge and competencies, the strengthening of synergies and creating new cooperations within and beyond the independent performing arts community itself.

LAFT Berlin

The LAFT Berlin – Berlin State Association for the Independent Performing Arts e.V. – was founded in 2007. It represents the interests of its 360 members, including the essential performance venues, groups and independent artists of Berlin, in dealing with politicians and the public. It supports its members through networking activities, consultation, coordination and services.
