Forecast has announced the six new mentors and its call for project ideas for the ninth edition of Forecast Mentorships.

Where: Worldwide

When: January 18 – February 26, 2024

Deadline for applications: February 26, 2024

Artistic practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields, anywhere in the world, are encouraged to apply to Forecast’s international mentorship program with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of this edition’s mentors and their unique approach to material and knowledge production.

Send us your project ideas for the chance to work with one of the following mentors: Choreographer Alice Ripoll (BR), designer Fiona Raby (UK), photographer Lieko Shiga (JN), artist Theo Eshetu (UK), documentary filmmaker Tomer Heymann (IL), and composer and performer Ute Wassermann (DE).

The mentors in Forecast Mentorships’ 2024–25 edition push against the constraints of the practices with which they engage. They renegotiate the common definitions of their respective fields and experiment in ways that defy simple readings of their work.

How to apply:
The call is open to applicants of all ages and does not prescribe a theme. The only requirement is to submit projects that are relevant to the expertise of the mentor you wish to work with. Find out more about each mentor’s field of expertise and what they are looking for in a potential mentee on Forecast’s website.

The deadline for applications is 11:59pm CET on Monday, February 26.

Free for participants.
