Open Call: Forecast Mentorship Program

Forecast is an international mentorship program that offers artists and creative thinkers the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. Forecast transcends neatly defined disciplines and genres to carve out space for the questions on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers. Artistic practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields, anywhere in the world, are encouraged to apply with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of this edition’s mentors and their unique approach to material and knowledge production. For each edition, Forecast selects six different mentors, all accomplished in their respective fields. The mentors in Forecast’s 2021–22 edition engage with practices which question fixed notions and challenge the status quo. In the current climate, Forecast seeks to define audacious paths forward rather than focus on mere survival or resilience.

Apply to work with one of the following mentors: architect Tatiana Bilbao (Mexico); digital policy expert Francesca Bria (Italy); experimental singer and composer Sofia Jernberg (Sweden); cartoonist Ulli Lust (Austria); choreographer Mathilde Monnier (France); and artist Emeka Ogboh (Nigeria). Find out more about each mentor’s field of expertise and what they are looking for in a potential mentee on the website.


The deadline for applications is 11:59pm CET on Sunday, February 28.
