LUCKY TRIMMER is on the hunt for daring socially engaged artistic projects that embody the LUCKY spirit!

Are you an independent artist or a collective who demonstrates artistic excellence and uses their practice as an innovative conduit for a social cause? If your project incorporates physicality, movement or performance and showcases how art’s social dimension can address cultural responsiveness and responsibility, we might be looking for you!

How can art connect local communities and social minorities? How can artists encourage under resourced communities to overcome barriers and to participate in creative process? How can artists or art organisations create equitable access to culture, foster conversations, increase environmental awareness or promote social equality through the arts? These are the questions we pose to you!

What is the LUCKY grant for?

• Socially engaged projects in which art is a catalyst for social change. All disciplines are eligible if they are engaged with physicality, movement and performance (including visual arts, literary arts, dance, theatre, film/video, music, performance-based arts, interdisciplinary/ hybrid arts)

• Projects that feature artists who engage socially underprivileged community members who would normally not have access to culture as equal partners

• Creative process: We value the process as much as the product. Relationship building is a key goal and projects do not have to automatically result in producing an exhibition or a theater production. Projects may, but are NOT required to, result in a physical artwork.

• Workshops, training, studio practice, if they directly relate to achieving outcomes of a community-based project.

Who can apply for the LUCKY CHANGEMAKER grant?

• Our special grant is open to all applicants, regardless of geographic location

• Individual artists or collectives/collaborations working locally, nationally or internationally

• LUCKY TRIMMER acknowledges that there is a growing and vibrant community of artists in our own backyard and we have a particular interest in strengthening our local socially engaged artists here in Berlin.

The LUCKY CHANGEMAKER 2017 will receive a cash grant of 500 € to support the continuation or realization of his/her project. Furthemore, the recipient of the grant will be invited to present his/her project at the LUCKY SUMMIT #9 in Berlin in 2018.
