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.

Evaluation pilot programme Kreativ-Transfer I

"The present evaluation (only in German) documents and assesses the measures implemented by the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e.V. in the period from January 01, 2019 to May 31, 2021 within the framework of the Kreativ-Transfer project and provides suggestions for the further development of the programme." (Feldstärken)

The evaluation provides information on the structure and organisation of the programme, as well as information on funding rounds, application figures and funding amounts, etc.

Kreativ-Transfer has developed steadily since it began in 2019.
It has been shown that the program can react to different situations with flexible solution orientations and thus responds to the needs of grantees.
This is not only visible through a strengthening of the program by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM), but also through various evaluations and factual reports from grantees, experts, and representatives of participating partner institutions.

Furthermore, the evaluation points out clear suggestions and goals for the future in order to promote the steady development of the programme.

Although the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland is continuously striving to reduce barriers, the application process is unfortunately still subject to certain barriers. If you are affected, please get in touch with us or ask a person you trust to do so on your behalf and let us know what you need. After discussing your needs, we will be happy to try to arrange assistance and assume the costs incurred.
