AWARD FOR UN-LABEL – WE ARE WINNERS OF THE German PRICE THE POWER OF THE ARTS
Un-Label has convinced the jurors: We are award winners of the nationwide initiative The Power of the Arts.
About 150 non-profit institutions have followed the call of the newly founded initiative The Power of the Arts, to promote integration and inclusion in Germany. Four projects were selected. Each of them receive a prize of 50,000 euros and will be honored at the Akademie der Künste on the 12th of December 2017 in Berlin.
Un-Label: Diversity, next level!
The price helps us to realize our dream to built up the Un-Label interdisciplinary, mixed-abled Performing Arts Company based in Cologne. We want to promote the equal participation of artists with and without disability in cultural life.
The last 2.5 years we have reached already over 100 international performers, actors, musicians, dancers and singers and our name marks the objective: by means of the performing arts, labels, boundaries, and biases are to be reduced, and not only vis-à-vis any specific group of persons. By creating a permanent Performing Arts Company, we want to support long-term and sustained professional career and employment opportunities for artists – regardless of their origin, because we are convinced that diversity enriches art!
We are looking forward to the exciting future of Un-Label…
