The new project Artist Training ARTISTIC COLLECTIVES is a qualification program offered by the UdK Berlin Career College aiming at the qualification, consulting and networking of artists in exile. In three editions from August 2020 to December 2021, five artist collectives from the sectors of music, fine arts, performing arts, film, and an interdisciplinary working group will receive support for five months. Artist Training offers a training unit consisting of 30 hours with monthly workshops according to individual goals, two individual consultations, the presentation of artistic work at a venue and the exchange among all groups. In addition, the Digital BASICS convey basic topics of self-employment with two hours of online teaching and 12 hours of in-depth workshops. The goals are networking with the Berlin cultural and creative industries by getting to know the institutions and their employees, the establishment on the Berlin labour market and the strategic positioning in the respective artistic orientation.
