Mentorships for Audacious Minds – Edition 8

The international programme for knowledge transfer will once again offer groundbreaking ideas a platform in Berlin from 14 to 16 July 2023 and put 18 new projects in the spotlight. Audacious projects and productions by forward thinkers from all over the world will be presented at the Forecast Forum in Berlin's Radialsystem.

Out of over 800 applications from more than 100 countries, the six mentors of Forecast’s 2023–24 edition have each identified three projects that they will accompany from May until the Forecast Forum in July.

The projects are nominated for a one-on-one mentorship with the respective mentor and will be presented during the Forecast Forum’s public days, from July 14–16, 2023, at Radialsystem in Berlin.

Following the Forum, each mentor will select one mentee. Those six projects will be further accompanied to completion, and unveiled at the Forecast Festival in March 2024 at the same venue.

Join the Forecast Forum in Berlin's Radialsystem for a weekend of thought-provoking experiences conceived by audacious practitioners from all over the world.
