This event takes place in Zoom:

Rushing from one application to the next, from project funding to project funding, hoping for the good will of a jury. And in between a lot of unpaid work for concept development and research, professional development and networking, administration and accounting. What has long been known, but seemingly taken for granted, the pandemic has clearly brought to light: artists of all disciplines as well as members of other essential professional groups of artistic production are usually highly qualified and well educated, but are neither adequately paid nor sufficiently socially protected.

Within the context of TanzHochDrei digital, the following questions will be discussed in detail at this year's panel: What are necessary consequences from the Corona pandemic? What funding models and what foundations are needed to enable fair pay, artistic career development, work continuity and meaningful social security in the performing arts? Furthermore, what needs do we have to meet especially in the field of dance, which is often characterised by short artistic careers?

After three best practice inputs on innovative funding models by Clara Manderscheid (project manager of the funding programme DIS-TANZEN, Dachverband Tanz), Kristine Karåla Øren (director of the Norwegian artists' association Norske Danskunstnere) and Rares Donca/Alessandra Mattana (project manager L'Abri Geneva), Anika Bendel (spokesperson for dancersconnect), Jenny Beyer (choreographer, Hamburg), Stephan Hoffmann (Office for Culture and Monument Protection, Dresden), Hannah Kayenburg (Office for Culture and Media, Hamburg) and Helge Lindh (Member of the Bundestag, cultural policy spokesperson for the SPD parliamentary group) discuss ways out of the precarious situation.
