The GSBTB - Open Music School (OMS) is a musical skill-sharing community with a focus on the integration of newcomers into Berlin’s music scene. In 2019, subject to the availability of funds, Berlin’s Senate Department for Culture and Europe will provide funding for “Weltoffenes Berlin” fellowships for a period of up to a year for professionals working in art, media, and culture who have left or intend to leave their countries of origin due to the current political situation there. The Senate Department also supports the project “Information about the Music Job Market in Berlin - Personal Advice and Accompaniment” that makes the network of the Landesmusikrat Berlin (State Music Council) available to musicians who were forced to leave their home countries for political reasons. International Artists Info Berlin, a joint project of touring artists with the Universität der Künste Berlin – Berlin Career College offers individual consultations on international projects as well as on questions on how to achieve a future career in Germany for arriving artists. Artist Training for Professionals is a qualification opportunity offered by the Berlin Career College for the qualification, consulting and networking of artists in exile. General information for both artists and cultural institutions can be found on the touring artist website, including a large section for artists from Turkey, translated into both Turkish and English.
