The workshop Working Independently is intended for newcomers to Berlin’s independent performing arts community. Therese Schmidt and Sabrina Apitz will look at the first steps to working independently together with the participants: How do you write concepts and applications that have the potential to be successful? What does the funding landscape look like and what types of funding come into question for me? What kinds of networking options are out there? How is it possible to work inside a collective? And what does that actually mean, “working independently”?

On each date, two people will receive the opportunity to examine their personal question and challenge due to the changed living and working situation due to the novel coronavirus with the group. In terms of content, the focus is placed on assisting people in a safe space, preparing oneself mentally and physically and getting ready for the coming times. What can I do in a period where there are no more funding applications, nothing works the way it used to and ideas are urgently needed for how to survive the near future?
