The Berlin Performing Arts Festival offers a wide range of events for visiting industry professionals to meet, discuss and network. A digital meet & greet, a networking meeting for circus artists, audio tours, a transnational tabletalk or a round of discussion with cultural politicians secure a wish to exchange, invite visitors to discover performance venues and highlight current developments within Berlin’s independent performing arts community.

In addition, PAF & friends allows an exchange to be conducted with artists from six partner festivals from other German states, the European festival network Bridging the Scenes will also come together to discuss current questions regarding international mobility and the project PRALIN promotes the exchange between the independent scene of Prague and Berlin. The cooperative project with Berlin universities PAF Campus invites students from artistic courses of study to discover works whose integral component is digital.

With exception of the round discussion "Politiker:innen Frühstück", registration is requested for all events listed below. Further information can be found in the individual program descriptions and here.
