The curator Dirk Förster will make the final decisions in February 2022. Aside from the application requirements, important factors in this process are the artistic assessment and the organizational feasibility of your project within the framework of the festival.

Advisory Board 

An advisory board will support the preparations of the festival. The members of the board will advise the festival director and curator on matters of discrimination in structural issues – particularly about topics of diversity, anti-discrimination, accessibility and barrier-free access.

The members of the advisory board will be informed about the applications received and the final selections.

The advisory board members are volunteers and the members are the following:

  • Charlotte Arens – dramatic advisor and curator, Mannheim
  • Anne-Marie Geisthardt – director of Kulturparkett Rhein-Neckar e.V., Mannheim
  • Seda Keskinkilic-Brück – freelance author and artist, Mannheim
  • Martin Köhl – social education professional, Heidelberg
  • Diana Kreissle – student, Heidelberg
  • Katya Lwanga – The Circle Collective e.V, student, Heidelberg

How we work

We want to make artistic processes and experiments possible, present a diverse palette of working methods and results and put them up for discussion. We think in an interdisciplinary manner and extend our reach outside of our own region in order to form networks. We like working with each other without hierarchies. We strive for clarity, openness and transparency. We would like to make our festival accessible to everyone.
