Our annual Signals Festival is a non-profit, educational event showcasing the diverse talent of Catalyst, Institute for Creative Arts and Technology (formerly dBs Berlin). Through a series of live performances, installations, screenings and educational content each year we’re addressing a theme relevant to film and music making in our shared communities.
The event was born six years ago out of a need to give our performance students a realistic, live environment to really push their learning and assessment experience. Over the years it evolved to incorporate more students’ productions such as installations and film screenings as well as opening out to a wider audience beyond the students’ peers. While there are no longer assessments, the heart of the festival remains about education and community.
Signals Festival is not just about showcasing our creators, it’s also very much about building relationships and learning opportunities with our external communities, peers, fans, colleagues and friends. We’re constantly in awe and proud of the talent, grit, kindness and diversity of our community - we’re looking forward to you joining us!
