Artist Training

The ARTIST TRAINING is a qualification programme offered by the UdK Berlin Career College aiming at the qualification, consulting, and networking of artists in exile. Since 2016, 33 modules have provided information and contacts for about 300 participants from the following fields: music, fine arts, performing arts, film and at the beginning culture and media. Networking events facilitate connections within the respective artistic field, while consulting activities examine individual situations in-depth. The project’s goals are networking with the Berlin cultural and creative industries by getting to know the institutions, the establishment on the Berlin labour market, and the strategic positioning in the respective artistic orientation.



The Artist Training offers continuing education for ARTISTIC COLLECTIVES in exile from the fields of music, fine arts, performing arts, and film from April 2020 to October 2021.
