What do sponsors want to read, what not? Good dance and theatre projects often fail because of cumbersome applications. It seems to be a great art to make both the goals of a project and its concrete implementation clear in what is often a limited space. After all, people have to be convinced personally in every funding committee.
This event deals with the meaning and structure of funding applications for the liberal performing arts, goal formulations and goal hierarchies, interpretations of invitations to tender, funding guidelines and accompanying measures to increase opportunities, as well as with stylistic questions, such as how a project can convince in its brevity.
It is expressly desired to bring along project proposals in order to discuss them together.
