This Atelier is hosted by Meraner Musikwochen / Settimane Musicali Meranesi in collaboration with Italia Festival and young festival managers from across the globe are invited to apply by 30 June.

Explore festival issues in various formats

45 participants from all over the world will be selected for the programme.

During lectures, one-on-one talks and group discussions, as well as during intense workshops on case studies, issues such as artistic vision, public responsibility, creation and coproduction, internationalisation, networking, renewal and sustainability, will be explored.
