About The Programme

Since 2019, Kreativ-Transfer has been supporting stakeholders in the fields of the performing arts, visual arts and games in establishing and expanding their international networks to improve their visibility on the international market. The programme supports the necessary international marketing and networking measures as well as the corresponding training and professionalisation of the stakeholders.

In particular, Kreativ-Transfer supports participation in international fairs and festivals, enabling artists, creatives and their representatives to present their work, make new contacts and find co-producers and clients.

In addition, the programme supports strategic international marketing, networking and professionalisation projects.

By offering workshops, networking meetings and informal get-togethers, Kreativ-Transfer provides opportunities for knowledge transfer and exchange of experiences.

The Kreativ-Transfer initiative will enter its third round in June 2023. Following Kreativ-Transfer I and II (which received 490,000 euros and 790,000 euros respectively in funding), Kreativ-Transfer III will be allocated funding of 1.4 million euros by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM).This increase marks another significant strengthening of the programme!

The Kreativ-Transfer programme is supported by Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e.V. (DTD). In implementing the programme, the DTD cooperates with the Bundesverband Freie Darstellende Künste e.V. (BFDK), the Bundesverband Zeitgenössischer Zirkus e.V. (BUZZ), the Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler e.V. (BVDG), the Internationalen Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste e.V. (IGBK), the game – Verband der deutschen Games-Branche e.V. and transmissions GmbH.

Further information on the continuation of the programme can be found in the press release (only in German).
