An invitation to artistic interventions defines the seventh edition of the international mentorship programme Forecast. Six renowned artists are to be connected with their future mentees at the Forecast Forum in mid-July.

Each of the six mentors of the 2022-23 Forecast programme nominated three individuals to present their pioneering ideas at the Forecast Forum. The 18 candidates were selected by the mentors out of a pool of 600 applicants from 100 countries. The entire Radialsystem complex becomes a platform for the mentee candidates to present their artistic projects and discuss their concepts. At the conclusion of the forum, each individual mentor decides privately on a mentee with whom they will work and exchange ideas for one year. The mentees’ artistic projects will be accompanied until completion and presented at the Forecast Festival in March 2023.

Biographien

Daliso Chaponda has been a stand-up comedian since 2001 beginning his career in Canada. In 2008, his comedy earned him a spot in the Edinburgh Fringe "Best of the Fest list, and in 2017 he shot to fame in Britain's Got Talent. Chaponda has since continued to appear regularly in broadcast media and is also the writer, creator, and host of his Rose d'Or nominated BBC Radio 4 show Citizen of Nowhere that has aired for two series.

Florentina Holzinger is an Austrian choreographer and performance artist whose body of work has enriched the international performance scene with award-winning pieces that meld dizzying acrobatics, martial-arts fight scenes, and pop-cultural references. Holzinger's latest productions are pieces that straddle the line between trashy spectacle and theater, incorporating stunts, gory splatter scenes, and crude sideshow humor into the canonical ballet repertoire.

Laura Huertas Millan is a French-Colombian filmmaker and visual artist, whose practise stands at the intersection between cinema, contemporary art and research. Entwining experimental ethnography, ecological and decolonial thinking, historical long-term enquiries, and fiction, her moving-image work engages with strategies of resistance and survival. Sensuous and immersive, her films propose embodied, emotional, and reflexive experiences. Third spaces imagined as healing altered states.

Alia Ibrahim is a journalist and the co-founder and CEO of Daraj. Between 2005 and 2011, her opinion and news stories appeared in important publications including The Washington Post, where she was a contributing reporter. Ibrahim also held a position as Senior Correspondent at Al-Arabiya News Channel and since 2015, she has produced and directed investigative reports for the network's Special Mission program. She has also been a journalism instructor at the Lebanese American University.

Ana Prvački is a conceptual artist with a training and background in music, theatre, mask work, architecture, fine art and beekeeping, which inform a cross disciplinary practice that ranges from watercolor to video, performance and mixed reality. Her experimental approach includes scientific research, behavioral study and emotional affect in a strategy aimed at creating imaginative tools for the challenges of daily life.

Musician Rully Shabara is interested in exploring human voice as a medium of creation, and language as a subject to experiment with. He explores vocal range, textures, and spirituality in his band Senyawa, and developed a conceptual language-driven project, Zoo. He has initiated numerous concept-based projects around voice as the main element and delivered workshops around the globe that focus on using human voice as a rich resource to explore primal expression and improvisations.
