Date: 16. June 2022
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sooner or later in an artistic career, one is confronted with the challenge of applying for funding or grants. At least this is the case if you live in a country that offers this possibility. During the next Online Information Session, artists-filmmakers Minze Tummescheit and Arne Hector will share their long-term hands-on experience with writing for projects’ funding in Germany, and in Berlin particularly. They will go through different funding opportunities and their specific requirements and will reveal tools and tactics that they have been using for writing successful art project funding applications. 

We kindly invite you to send us your questions regarding the writing of art projects’ funding applications, until 13 June 2022. This will help us to focus on your area of interest and prepare accordingly. 

Participation in the Online Information Session is free of charge and open to all.

Arne Hector and Minze Tummescheit have been working together since 2000, as a duo under the name cinéma copains. Their experimental documentary art practice, which includes lectures, performances, installations, and films, reflects on social and economic issues.
