I am one out of 60 chosen scholarship holders for Impulstanz Festival in Vienna. Your support brings me there and much further!! :)
Hey guys, this is what it is about:
Every year in july and august Impulstanz, a big festival for dance and peformance in Vienna, Austria, is taking place. A large spectrum of all kinds of workshops and events around dance and performanceare being offered there as well as calls for artists, teacher and students from all around the globe. It is perceived as a plattform that exchanges and represents various ideas about contemporary dance and performance art and practices.
The danceweb scholarship for Impulstanz offers a 5 week training progam, with free access to all workshops and events, such as mentoring and also the accomodation in Vienna.
I GOT SELECTED TO BE ONE OF THE SCHOLARSHIP HOLDERS!!! :-)

60 people out of about 1000 applicants get choosen to take part. Schlarshipholders are mainly dancer, performer and choreographer from different backgrounds and ages.
The program allows to exchange, connect, discuss, experiment with each other, find out more about what your collegues from far away or next door are busy with and offers a wide range of possible experiences in vienna for one summer long.
Mentor of this year will be Tino Sehgal, visual and performance artist that will set the focus of this years edition on visual arts in choreography, dance and performance.
Workshops, teacher, students and events will be concentrating on this specific meetingpoint of the different artistic practices:

TO PARTICIPATE I NEED TO FIND 2150 € , WHICH IS ONE THIRD OF THE WHOLE AMOUNT OF THE SCHOLARSHIP. TWO THIRD ARE COVERED BY DANCEWEB.
In this side I am trying to gather about 55 percent of the whole amout. The other part will be covered by myself. As I am just a poor student it is not so easy to gather the money. And therefore I am in need of your help!!

Your help will first of all allow me to further develop myself as an artist and choreographer at impulstanz.
To be part of Impulstanz scholarship program is an amazing chance if not to say and honour for young artists like me.

The Crowdfunding will be uniquely used to accomplish the amount of 2150 Euros , that are required in order to do the danceweb Scholarship programme. It will be transmitted to the organisation and not used for any other purpose but this. Without this amount of money I will be unable to participate.
You can find a complete description on lifelongburning webpage, that is providing danceweb scholarships here:
In the lower paragraph it says:
"If selected for the danceWEB Scholarship Programme, the scholarship recipients still need to find a financial contribution (EUR 2.150,-) to their total scholarship expenses from national/regional funding institutions in their home country/country of residence in order to secure their participations."
In germany such as in the netherlands I could not find any source or funding that wished to support me in this specific situation. The fact that my project is in the first place a educational enlargment that doesnt has a specific artistic outcome as its main focus and also the fact that it is not a project supporting directly the local environment of the source of funding makes it hard if not impossible to find supporters for. This motivates me to seek help in crowdfunding. :-)

IF YOU THINK THIS SUMMER PROGRAM WILL HELP ME AND THEREFORE ALSO IN THE LONG TERM THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL FIELD OF PERFORMING ARTS, DANCE AND CHOREOGRAPHY, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE SUPPORT ME!!!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE READING SUPPORTING AND SHARING MY CAMPAIGN!! MUCH LOVE!
