LUCKY TRIMMER seeks artists that use their creativity to affect positive social change!

LUCKY TRIMMER is launching a brand new initiative supporting socially engaged artistic projects that embody the LUCKY spirit!

We’re on the hunt for daring new projects that incorporate physicality, movement or performance in an effort to create meaningful change in your community, city, country or the world. The winning LUCKY CHANGEMAKER will receive a cash grant to support the continuation or realization of the project.

Whether you may be an independent artist or collective who demonstrates artistic excellence and uses their practice as an innovative conduit for a social cause, we are looking for projects that showcase how art’s social dimension can address cultural responsiveness and responsibility.

What is the LUCKY CHANGEMAKER 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 theatre 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.

What is the LUCKY CHANGEMAKER grant?

LUCKY TRIMMER will grant one project with a 500 € prize and extra promotion support via our website and social media throughout the development and launch of the project.

Who can apply?

- Our special grant is open to all applicants, regardless of geographic location. LUCKY TRIMMER acknowledge 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.

- Individual artists or collectives/collaborations working locally, nationally or internationally.
