projects that will take place over the next four years
↪  Support 20 artists on a long-term base, some of whom have been selected by their artists colleagues. Each of them will receive co-production grants, as well as residencies and performance possibilties.

↪  During the four years we are planning more than 50 co-productions of the artists supported and around 100 presentations, also more than 50 residencies will be hosted.

↪  5 Everybody’s Sisters Festival will be conceived and realised by 2-3 partner organisations each. While working together on curation as well as production and PR, they will exchange, learn from each other and moreover find sustainable production structures. Each festival will appear in two similar but not identical versions in two cities, one after the other.

↪  A Task Force will accompany the festivals, observing the experiment of sharing resources, and assess it as a new business model under the condititons of feminist principles.

↪  A Feminist School will also be implemented in each partners location during the Everybody’s Sisters Festival. Designed as an exchange of practices and knowledge among partners, artists and audiences in a non-hierarchical, feminist environment, it will offer all participants the opportunity to acquire new skills. Here teaching and learning is meant to be mutual, horizontal and engaging.

↪ In total 55 Ventures, which are part of the regular program of each partner, provide access for local groups to Performing Arts. These outreach-projects offer the possibilty for artists to place their interests and practice in various contexts, engage with different audiences, and cooperate with specific local organisations.

↪  A Learning Exchange with the School Escola Livre de Dança da Maré directed by the choreographer Lia Rodrigues in Rio de Janeiro. In her educational programme socio-political and schooling work overlap. Residencies for apap artists in Rio as well as for Brazilian dancers in the partner’s organisations (each three) will be accompanied by Lia Rodrigues’ mentorship of the network.

↪ A new edition of the mentoring programme Critical Practice (Made in Yugoslavia) which enables young critics, writers or writing artists to produce texts, artistic talks, short podcasts, etc. Two cycles of writers will visit seminars and workshops hosted by apap-partners as well as partners of the NOMAD dance academy-network
