New on Festival Bytes: Fluid identies

20 May 2014

At the beginning of April, I spent seven days as a participant in the European Festivals Association’s Atelier for Young Festival Managers. I was part of the cohort for the Edinburgh edition, hosted by the Edinburgh International Festival. The Atelier brought together 51 young festival managers from 28 countries and nine renowned festival directors from all over the world who were our mentors. I now join a group of 223 alumni from 56 countries. To spend an intensive seven days immersed in the world of festivals amongst peers from around the world was inspiring and rejuvenating. There’s something about taking yourself out of the day-to-day, to an unfamiliar place with people who don’t know each other that allows you to reflect and focus on issues, themes and ideas that are most important to you.
