We're Kreativpilot*innen!

Wow. Thank you to everyone who voted for us, the jury for the great conversations and for selecting us, and our fellow KreativPilot*innen for instantly becoming such a supportive community.

The "KukPi" Programm selects 32 creative and cultural projects in Germany for a year of tailored mentorship, workshops, and opportunities to cross-pollinate with other entrepreneurs and advocates. It’s an honour to be alongside these 31 badass teams, as well as the ones from the thirteen previous cohorts:


aMStartBLINC / CityCaddy / Crowd Impact / Dr & Dr Middle Eastern Culture and Food Lab / Dreh-Strom / Equality Film / Fashion Label in Togo by Faourouz Sadaoutchi / Finizio / GoLexic / The Imposters / Kompreno / Kynd Hair / Maple Tales / Missoir / SafeSpace / OMCC / Plastikfabrik / Proservation / Queermed Deutschland / Qzeng Productions / Rasa Tabula / Repair Rebels / Scobees / shades&contrast / Undo Yarn / urnfold / VOLTA!C / Wombly / Xia Pleasure Objects / YouCan!

These incredible teams are from all across Germany:  Berlin, Bochum, Buckow, Chemnitz, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Eberswalde, Frankfurt a.M., Hamburg, Köln, Ludwigsburg, Münster, Regensburg, Saarbrücken, Stuttgart, and Wennigsen.

In August, we asked for your help with the public voting. I interviewed in October and attended the first workshop in November. The award ceremony will be in February in Berlin! The program is run by the u-institut and supported by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BWMK).

This recognition extends Polar Embassy’s platform to spotlight some truly incredible Berlin-based queer artists. And it helps us grow with more sex-positive, sustainable, gender-neutral, and educational products - coming out soon! Stay tuned with us via Instagram, and thank YOU again!
