Forecast is an international platform for knowledge transfer that is now calling on pioneers from diverse disciplines to submit their project ideas by November 30, 2016. This year’s lineup of mentors—curator Hou Hanru (China), designer Heather Martin (United Kingdom), video artist Bjørn Melhus (Germany/Norway), architect Philippe Rahm (Switzerland), choreographer Richard Siegal (USA), and composer Jennifer Walshe (Ireland)—are offering their expertise and will invite 30 creative minds to present their concepts during the Forecast Forum 2017, at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW). Forecast encourages interdisciplinary exchange and public discussion on the ideas of the future.

Forecast offers participants the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition. Forecast transcends the boundaries of disciplines and genres to provide insight into creative production processes, and makes space for the questions that are on the minds of the next generation of trailblazers.

From October 1 to November 30, 2016, creative minds from anywhere in the world working in various disciplines may submit their proposals. Forecast will invite 30 applicants to discuss their ideas and present them to the public at the HKW during the Forecast Forum from March 27 to April 1, 2017.

At the end of the Forecast Forum, the six mentors will each select one concept, which they will accompany to fruition. The outcome of these collaborations will be presented from October 16 to 21, 2017, at the Forecast Festival at the HKW.
