Experience new projects by artists, performers, designers, choreographers, and creative thinkers as they get their world premiere at the Forecast Festival following a ten-month collaboration with renowned mentors.
The mentees have been developing their projects since May, 2021. After months of ongoing exchanges with the individual mentors—which also included a one-on-one work-stay at an international partner institution for each tandem—the six mentees will bring their projects to life in concerts, performances, installations, and conversations.
The entire building will be activated through interactive artworks, and sensory experiences, guided walkthroughs, workshops, and showcases by the mentors Tatiana Bilbao, Francesca Bria with special guest Evgeny Morozov, Sofia Jernberg, Ulli Lust, Mathilde Monnier, and Emeka Ogboh with special guest Ozoz Sokoh.
The two-day Forecast Festival is a chance to get an early glimpse of the topics and ideas on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers:
