In order to establish yourself as a (young) artist in the scene, you need to network. However, there is always a lack of informal opportunities for this. This year's festival edition therefore offers a real alternative to the often too stiff premiere party champagne.

Over coffee and tea, (up-and-coming) artists from Hamburg, artists from different regions of Germany, as well as directors of festivals and institutions of the independent scene come together. Similar to speed dating, the artists then have the opportunity to briefly introduce themselves personally, finally get rid of pressing questions, or quite gallantly push a flyer for their own project to the other side of the table. Analoge Visitenkarten is a low-threshold networking offer to empower artists and enable exchange at eye level between heterogeneous actors of the independent scene. Furthermore, the cooperation with the newcomer platform WE PRESENT of the LICHTHOF Theater will be maintained and strengthened. Let's have a coffee together!
