Thanks for participating!

Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs will return in 2017.

Almost 500 young people from 24 countries – Uruguay, Columbia, India, DR Congo, South Africa, Argentina, Malaysia, the Philippines, Tanzania, Venezuela, Hong Kong, the USA, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Switzerland, Australia, Italy, France, Russia, Poland, Egypt and Germany – applied for »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs«, the independent format for international young talents, supported by the Goethe-Institut. An expert jury picked the 250 participants for the 42 workshops.

Over the course of two days they learned from influential experts like Colin Newman (Wire), Lucrecia Dalt, Barbara Morgenstern, Matthew Herbert (in collaboration with Native Instruments), Jan Rohlf from the CTM Festival and Parker Tilghman from Yo! Sissy among others. James Minor, the general manager of the SXSW, opened »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs 2016« with a keynote speech.
