Summer training for emerging artists

Build your professional artistic backbone

In cooperation with the Dutch foundation the artist+the others, PLATFORM organised a summer training for emerging artists. It was tailored to provide fifteen recently graduated artists the chance to acquire the knowledge, skills and connections that are needed to start developing a remarkable career, and immerse into Munich’s international art scene. 

During an intensive and dynamic week (Monday 5th – Friday 9th of July 2021) of interactive workshops and activities, the participants got to know the existing dynamics of the art world, gained knowledge on artist statements, on artists portfolios and how to make their own. Additional topics were, the application process for artists in residency programs, grants and the international standard for fair art practice.  

They exchanged knowledge with several art professionals including curators, gallerists, founders of art initiatives; held break-out conversations and gave presentations spiced up by fun activities and guest artists.  

the artist+the others is an initiative based on the importance of arts for our society and the benefit of shared knowledge. The foundation, initiated in 2013, supports young artists and cultural professionals during their career in the cultural field. 

Stay tuned for our ongoing program in summer 2022!
