ONpaper. Digital workshop series by inm / field notes berlin and ON Cologne

In this year's online workshop series ONpaper, which we are organizing again together with ON Cologne, experts will teach basic skills for working in the independent scene.

Under the heading "Application Fitness" we will get you ready for project funding in the spring. In addition to classic workshops with introductions to the funding landscapes in Berlin and Cologne, application writing or accounting, this year we are exploring new formats such as Meet the Jury, informal get-togethers on funding or sessions for writing applications together.

Although the independent scene defines itself in part precisely by breaking away from hierarchical ways of working that widely encourage the abuse of power and racism, it is not exempt from structural exclusions either. On the contrary, it lacks diverse perspectives and non-normative bodies, attitudes, narratives, and aesthetics. With workshops on anti-racism and diversity development, we would like to accompany the scene on the process of opening up, sensitize for blind spots and facilitate access to the scene for marginalized persons with empowerment offers.

A third module on press and public relations, audience development, profile building and management will provide concrete assistance in the development and implementation of projects.

The workshops are aimed at artists from the independent contemporary music scene in Cologne and Berlin and are free of charge. We ask for binding registration.

The workshop series will be continued after the summer break. We will announce the program in the course of the next few months. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions or proposals.

Förderstammtisch Berlin:Köln

Wed 30 March 2022, 4-5.30 pm
The best way to learn about interesting funding programs and upcoming deadlines is to talk to colleagues. That's why we invite you once a quarter to an informal exchange about aspects of fundraising. We start by presenting the relevant funding programs of the quarter with regard to the funding criteria, which may vary from city to city, and give an overview of current funding deadlines. Afterwards, there is time for questions and exchange among each other. In addition, the meetings provide an opportunity to network with colleagues in Cologne and Berlin
