DICE 2019: The Revolution Will Not Be Funded

DICE 2019 | The Revolution Will Not Be Funded This panel, named after the must-read book by INCITE!, addresses how to navigate fundraising for grassroots projects. When organising socially-focused or activist events, we're faced with a range of choices. DIY is a lot of fun, until everyone burns out. Commercialising activities in order to pay the bills often runs counter to the central political values of activist groups. The funding landscape seems to offer a sort of third way, a path out of burnout and financial ruin, without needing to cater to brands or chase profit. However, it comes with its own set of difficulties and barriers to success. Discussing the positives and pitfalls of the funding cycle are Lena Szirmay-Kalos (Montag Modus), Sky Deep (Reclaim the Beats Festival/Reveller Records), Jana Braun (Bezirkskulturfonds Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg), with moderation by Lucy Alice Thomas (Give Something Back To Berlin).

DICE 2019: Grantwriting Workshop

DICE 2019 | Grantwriting Workshop with Maebh Murphy A successful grant application can get you money and allow you to implement your project ideas or make them more sustainable. In this practical session we will go into the motivations behind grant applications, how to find suitable funders and the basic elements of a grant application including project proposal, budget, timeline and work packages. We will also touch on the non-profit industrial complex, introducing some ideas from the book by INCITE! called “The Revolution Will Not Be Funded” and exploring how we can both survive under capitalism and other oppressions and do necessary and sustainable community, artistic and activist work. This interactive lecture will give you the tools to get cracking on your next funding application and identify areas you need to work on. Concrete project ideas are welcome but not necessary. Maebh Murphy is a musician and organiser. In the 2000s following her studies in literature and drama in Ireland, she made site specific urban audio tours in the UK and Ireland and at festivals in Europe and the U.S. She has been instrument and band coaching and programming events for girls and queer rock camps and related projects since 2011. She also works as a consultant in project development.Together with a group of artists and activists she founded ATEM e.V. in 2018, which makes projects by and for people who experience discrimination in – amongst other fields – music.

DICE 2019: Intergenerationality in Dance Music

DICE 2019 | Intergenerationality in Dance Music with Ari Robey-Lawrence, KILLA, Jenifa Mayanja and Mac Folkes Since the nascence of the concept of popular culture in the early 20th century, it was considered something that was inherently generational — a fundamental characteristic being that each generation abandons the habits, styles and aesthetics of the old in favour of the new and completely modern. The advent of the electronic age has led to a palpable splintering between generations where fertile ground for coalition between generations once existed. Does the opportunity for intergenerational coalition and communication still exist in dance music environments? How do participants in local rave scenes circumnavigate the division and isolation imposed by the dominance of social media & virtual communities? How do we reconcile the need for exchange between generations of the past and present in the Internet age?

DICE 2019: Immigrants: We Get The Job Done! Migration and Drag Culture

DICE 2019 | Immigrants: We Get The Job Done! Migration and Drag Culture A panel discussion with Cupcake, DARVISH, Prince Emrah, and Judy LaDivina, moderated by the witty tragicomic Lux Venérea. Immigrants: We Get The Job Done is a conversation between four artists who have either immigrated or have refugee/asylum status in Berlin and have created strikingly beautiful artistic personas while structuring their own collectives and events on their own terms. They speak about their processes of coming into their own as artists while getting the job done by creating safe(r) spaces for other artists of immigrant and refugee status.

DICE 2019: Collectivity Deconstructed

DICE 2019 | Collectivity Deconstructed a talk by Dr. Luiza Prado and Dr. Edna Bonhomme We're proud to share "Collectivity Deconstructed", a talk by Dr. Luiza Prado and Dr. Edna Bonhomme. This talk unpacks the term "collectivity" as it is defined and practiced in creative and research projects. The speakers honour collaboration as a starting point for creativity and map out ways to take an intersectional approach to working collectively.

DICE 2019: Race, Gender and Identity Politics as Currency

DICE 2019 | Race, Gender, and Identity Politics as Currency: Whose is it to Spend? A panel discussion with Mac Folkes, Esther Jeroboan, Christelle Oyiri & Djibril Sall. Conceptualized and moderated by DICE co-curator Ari Robey-Lawrence. In recent years, “Identity” has risen to the top of the contemporary consciousness, and nowhere more than in the underground and experimental arts scenes. In response, a race to establish “diversity” initiatives, particularly among music platforms that have been criticised for their lack of diversity, has transpired across the industry. Dance music has seen a surge in formerly underrepresented performers being pushed into the spotlight, and identity has become a new currency that festivals, club bookers and labels are eager to trade in. But to what extent are these formerly sidelined demographics able to control or mediate their new-found representation? How permanent are these apparent changes for the better, and who ultimately profits from such...

DICE 2019: Spins and Spells with Lyra Pramuk

DICE 2019 | Spins and Spells: a presentation by Lyra Pramuk In this presentation, Lyra Pramuk shares insights into her live performance and composition process as it currently unravels. Focusing on personal and historical background, live, improvised singing, resampling, and FX processing, this presentation posits a model for embodied improvisation between human and computer leading to a speculative, post-human music practice rooted in dedication, listening, and embodiment.

DICE 2019: Tossing The Master's Tools with Dr. Emilia Roig

DICE 2019 | Tossing the Master's Tools, a talk by Dr. Emilia Roig, Executive Director of the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ) What does transformation look like? Oppressive patterns permeate all areas of life, including left wing movements and politics. Toxicity and domination can be overcome. If we shift our resources and power in another direction, from reacting to dismantling and rebuilding we can escape reproducing the patterns inherited from the oppressors. It's easier said than done, but therein lies the power of liberation. Emilia Roig is the Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ), a Berlin-based organisation combatting intersecting forms of inequality and discrimination in Europe. She is faculty member of the Social Justice Study Abroad Program of DePaul University of Chicago and has taught graduate and post-graduate courses on Intersectionality Theory, Postcolonial Studies, Critical Race Theory and International and European Law...

DICE 2018: Listening Work with Dr. Marie Thompson

Listening Work: Listening as a crucial political act A workshop with Dr. Marie Thompson Listening is often presented as a crucial political act: it is a vital component of activism, remembrance and community-building. As such, listening has been at the heart of many ethico-aesthetic practices, including acoustic ecology’s ear-cleaning exercises and Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening. Yet these important figurations tend not to address listening’s intersections with social reproduction. This workshop assumes two things to be true at once. Listening is a key component of feminist activism and social justice. Listening is also unevenly anticipated, unevenly distributed, often undervalued, readily exploited and frequently commodified. In light of this, I connect listening to recent debates about emotional labour, considering the implications for understandings of sonic affect and demands for us to listen more. In recognising the ways in which listening helps to reproduce, rather than c...
