Xchange: Berlin-SF Barter
September 2009 through January 2010
Xchange: Berlin-SF Barter is an international artist interchange program between Berlin’s ‘Inter Art Project’ and Bay Area’s ‘Thingamajigs’. Artists who represent both organizations will work together in both cities to create new work and present it in the form of concerts and symposiums. This unique opportunity allows artists and audiences from each host city to view work and listen to concerns from out of town artists and compare them to their own.
The goal of this program is to exchange (or barter) creative ideas between working artists residing in these two metropolitan centers, and to build awareness of the current thoughts and trends that encompass our art. Also, to allow audiences of both areas to witness an international movement of artists and performers they might not otherwise come in contact with.
The host organizations are currently putting the finishing details on the Bay Area portion of the exchange program. Please stay posted.
