Cheers for Fears Traumformate gives art students, aspiring artists, curators and collectives the opportunity to organize an event or format between November 2022 and January 2023 that brings together fellow students and artists from different disciplines and art schools. Cheers for Fears is offering organizational mentoring and financial support for the selected Traumformate. Cheers for Fears is looking for people who have an idea for a concept of an exchange format for aspiring artists and theoreticians and who are motivated to realize the concept with the support of the initiative. The focus of Traumformate is on artistic-curatorial concepts aiming to create a space for interdisciplinary encounters. The format is expected to be open for participation of various interested parties, which can apply for example through an open call.

Traumformate are supposed to enable people who are students or starting to work in the art field to come together in physical space, digitally or hybrid in e.g. a joint exhibition, a research laboratory, an interactive performance, discussion round or other formats to receive new artistic impulses or to try out new artistic formats.

The Cheers for Fears initiative thrives on the commitment of students and young artists in NRW. Traumformate are on one hand responding to the inspirations and impulses of the Cheers community. On the other hand Cheers for Fears is looking forward to meet new artists, curators and art-theorists who would be interested in collaborating with Cheers for Fears in the future.
