Background Kreativ-Transfer II

The aim of the Kreativ-Transfer funding program is to support actors in the fields of performing arts, visual arts and games in establishing and expanding their international network in order to improve their visibility on the international market. The program supports the necessary international exchange as well as the professionalization and qualification of the actors.

Specifically, Kreativ-Transfer promotes participation in international fairs and festivals. This should enable artists, creatives and their representatives to present their work, make new contacts and find co-producers and clients.

In addition, the program supports international networking, visibility and professionalization projects.
