Two hybrid digital festivals on April 1–2 and April 9–10, 2021, livestreamed from radialsystem in Berlin, will conclude the fourth and fifth editions of the international mentorship program Forecast.
The twelve mentees of the fourth and fifth editions of Forecast will unveil their productions at the Forecast Festivals, which take place as hybrid events staged at radialsystem and streamed online. Following the postponement of the fourth edition’s closing event by a year due to the pandemic, both editions will celebrate their culmination in two consecutive events.
The artists and thinkers of both editions will bring their projects to life in concerts, performances, installations, and conversations with leading figures in their fields, including Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Fran Edgerly (Assemble), Blanca de la Torre, and Irini Papadimitriou.
The festivals will be moderated by Kimberly Bradley and Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson.
