With hosted visits, we offer a format that focuses on peer-to-peer learning. Hosts - as experts of their region - introduce their own region to interested visitors. On the one hand, they provide insights into the specifics of the funding and art landscape in their city or region, and on the other hand, into their own work practice on site.

You can apply for the hosted visit in Leipzig until 09.04.2023, 23:00. We will inform you about the selection of the visitors in calendar week 15.

After we have announced the selection of visitors that we will invite to Münster, an Intro Zoom will take place for the hosts & visitors to get to know each other and to discuss the hosted visit in advance. We are currently planning the Intro Zoom for calendar week 15 or 16. The exact date will then be coordinated between produktionsbande, the hosts & visitors.

about the format

The format addresses all those whose work is located at the interfaces between art practice and structures, between organization and administration in the broadest sense. It is aimed at artistic producers, production managers, production dramaturges, performing arts managers, distributors, production offices, etc.

Anyone who works in cultural production and is interested in a supra-regional exchange with colleagues can become a visitor. During the selection process, we pay attention to whether applicants exclusively produce their own projects - but primarily work as artists, curators, etc. - or whether they design production processes as production managers with and for third parties.

The selection is made by a rotating selection committee of produktionsbande.

For the hosted visit, the following costs will be covered by produktionsbande:

  • Travel and accommodation expenses in accordance with the Federal Travel Expenses Act (BRKG)

  • Additional expenses for meals according to BRKG

  • Expense allowance of net 200,00 €/day (for pre- and post meetings - via Zoom - a total daily rate will be charged)

  • further costs incurred (entrance tickets, etc.) after consultation with the hosts.

Hosted visits are an evolving format, with a profile and schedule which we are currently working out and practicing.

In the process, we are trying to be aware of and respond to barriers in order to reduce them as much as possible. If you have any questions in advance about the accessibility of the application process and during the residency, please feel free to contact Sofie via email at
