What is your Plan C? Interview with Jochen Sandig, Berlin
In this interview, the host of IETM (International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts) Berlin meeting, Jochen Sandig, director of Radialsystem V, will share his journey of executing his Plan C – starting the meeting preparation with no budget. Passionate about social entrepreneurship, Jochen explains his belief of ‘share- giver’ value – a value system based on what one offers instead of what one receives. Also, the secret of working with volunteers and the importance of good partnership.

About Plan C
On 15th of April, 2010, IETM (International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts) invited over 500 cultural operators and performing artists from over 50 countries to come to Berlin for four days to find new ways of dealing with crucial conflicts and challenges in our world. The invitation says: “Having tried Plans A and B, from Capitalism to Communism,... we are now searching for a third way... A Plan C to turn the crisis of this new century into a chance for culture. It is not a contradiction – chaos and creation are close comrades and between cooperation and competition we have to find the right centre.” (Creative Crisis Economy by Dirk Pilz). Having a long term interest in creating new economic models for sustaining creative practices, I was invited by IETM to participate in their meeting and encouraged to lead a session during the ‘Open Camp’. For 2010LAB.tv,
I will post four different personal interviews with the following people and conclude with an article about the concept of Plan C in relation to the value chain of artistic thinking and creative process.
