Call For Applications: Border Movement Residency Berlin 2017


Applications for Border Movement Residency (BMR) Berlin 2017 – a unique all expenses paid 2 month tailor made program for musicians from South Asia are now open.

2016 saw Border Movement send 3 artists ( KʌLʌ, Dinelka and Ghazaleh E) from South Asia to Berlin:

“I’ve experienced amazing things in this journey. I have learned a lot too. I’ve captured all of it. It’s all a part of me now. And, it will be in everything I do henceforth both as an artiste, and as an individual…” Ghazaleh E, Iran

“I met my ‘other’ family in Berlin. My music family. I shared beautiful connections with all these musicians who came from different parts of the world. We’d never met before but we all spoke the same language — music.” Dinelka, Sri Lanka

2017 will also see 3 artists from South Asia get selected to spend 2 months in Berlin. Full details and the application form can be found here. The main difference this year is that there will be only one call for applications for all 3 residencies in Berlin this year – the deadline is Friday 17 February.

Border Movement will cover all travel, accommodation, food and production costs for this project. The residency program will see successful applicants meet and collaborate with local artists, undertake music production master classes, interact with local labels and music businesses and get the opportunity to play gigs in Berlin. Each residency will be shaped around the individual needs of each successful applicant creating a unique residency opportunity.

BMR is an initiative in partnership with Border Movement, Goethe-Institut, Wild City, Ableton and Musicboard Berlin.
