Creatives Support | Refugee Creatives
[FOR STELLWERK MEMBERS]
Many refugees live in and around Göttingen. Some of them worked in the creative industries in their home countries and now have problems getting a foot in the door professionally here in Germany. By becoming sponsors, STELLWERK members provide the membership fee (EUR 25 per year) for one or several migrant(s) to enable access to EXPRESS workshops, a web site profile and other internal STELLWERK offers. Sponsorship allocation is anonymous and the recipients cannot be selected. However, the application form provides specification of gender and industry, and after allocation anonymity can be lifted. Sponsorship cannot be declared a charitable donation for tax purposes, as STELLWERK is not a charitable organisation. Prerequisites for the migrants‘ membership is occupation in the creative industries and knowledge of German at least at level B1.
Recently or some years ago you fled from your home country and used to work in the creative industries there?

You are finding it difficult to get a foot in the door professionally here in Göttingen, establish contact to other creative professionals and keep up to date with matters concerning your profession?
Are you searching for opportunities to gain a foothold in the working world?
Then STELLWERK, the network for the creative professions in Göttingen, is just the right address for you: as a member, you can participate in workshops with no extra charge, present yourself as a creative professional with a profile on the web site and get to know people in your profession at the regular meetings („Stammtisch“ at the APEX in Burgstraße). As participants in the initiative »STELLWERK signal – Creative Professionals Support their Refugee Colleagues«, STELLWERK members donate the annual membership fee (EUR 25,-) for migrants working in the creative professions. This sponsorship scheme will provide you with STELLWERK membership for free. However, only sponsorship offers submitted by members can be considered, otherwise membership free of charge cannot be guaranteed. For selection of the migrants for support, the chronological sequence of the submissions is relevant, and sometimes the industry or profession, possibly even gender. Some members want to support creative professionals in their industry or women specifically.
Prerequsite for membership is knowledge of German at least at level B1.
We are looking forward to your joining us!
