Within the program "Kreativ-Transfer" companies, artists and game developers as well as producers, gallery owners and artist-run project space operators travel to international festivals, fairs and platforms in Germany, in Europe and around the world. They present their work, make new contacts and find co-producers and clients. "Kreativ-Transfer" promotes these journeys and strengthens the exchange of professional know-how.
