Fellowship Program "Weltoffenes Berlin"
Funding target group and objectives
Cultural sector stakeholders who are resident in Berlin can apply for fellowships for a period of up to a year in 2022. These are designed to facilitate professional integration of people working in art, media, and culture who have left or intend to leave their countries of origin due to the current political situation there.
The fellowships for the target group, i.e., professionals working in art, media, and culture, are limited to one year and aim to facilitate independent artistic or creative work in collaboration with the cultural sector stakeholder submitting the application.
Cultural sector stakeholders who are active professionals in art, media, and culture and who are resident in Berlin are eligible to apply.
Professionals working in art, media, and culture who become fellows should have completed professional training or courses of study in artistic or creative subjects and/or have worked in art, media, and culture on a professional level.
The cultural sector stakeholder submitting the application is required to sign a contract (e.g., employment or service contract) with the professional working in art, media, and culture who becomes a fellow.
In the context of the fellowship, the fellow should to be supported in the pursuit of their own professional perspectives as needed.
Volume of funding
For each fellowship, a monthly sum of up to €2,500 will be paid for a maximum of 12 months to finance project-related costs.
The fellowships are usually announced in the summer of each year – on condition that budget funds are available – for project realisation in the following year.
