About the Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Programs are intended for art and culture makers of all ages who are either planning on joining Berlin’s independent performing arts community (“Newcomers”) or would like to expand their qualifications as a member of the independent performing arts community (“Pro”).

In addition to the two mentoring programs “Newcomers” and “Pro” for performing artists, the mentoring program “Music” is offered in cooperation initiative neue musik berlin e.V. for art and culture makers in the field of music/music theater.  The mentees should be based in Berlin for the next three years.

Experienced mentors, including artists working in various fields, production managers and representatives of established independent Berlin performance venues and institutions provide the mentees with intense support over the course of individual sessions for a period of three years. In addition to this, the mentees will attend workshops, receive support from the coordinators of the PAP Consultation & Qualification program as well as access to the network for the independent performing arts community and all offers of the Performing Arts Program.

More information about the respective programs can be found in the respective programs.
