Weltoffenes Berlin

Where: Berlin

When: 2018 - until now

With: Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa

Artists and writers in many countries find themselves endangered and threatened in their work. Spaces for arts and culture are shrinking – not only in war zones but also in countries where governments are acting in an increasingly authoritarian manner. 

The Allianz Kulturstiftung supports artists and writers who were forced to leave their countries and are now continuing their work from here. In cooperation with the Berlin Senate’s program Weltoffenes Berlin, the foundation provides fellowship grants to artists who have recently arrived in Germany

The programs’ aim is to create new resonance spaces for the fellows’ artistic work and to make their voices heard across language barriers.
