NEW Atelier for Arts and Production Managers Elefsina – Beirut

17 February 2020

The Festival Academy is thrilled to announce a tailor made Atelier for Arts and Production Managers in partnership with Drosos Foundation, Eleusis 2021, Zoukak Theatre Company Beirut and Artlink. The training consists of three modules

-          Module I Elefsina/ Greece 1-5 May 2020

-          Module II A placement around the world - ongoing between May 2020 - November 2020 (Minimum 1 week)

-          Module III Beirut/ Lebanon 3_6 December 2020

This programme will bring together some 30 Arts and Production managers from Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Macedonia, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey and Serbia to discuss the topics they are concerned with from a multitude of perspectives, both in terms of role (producer/curator) as in terms of region. The main purpose of this format is to allow participants to exchange with peers as well as experts, to get hands-on experience through a placement in a festival or arts organization around the world and to create a regional network for new initiatives and collaborations.

The training is set up as a long-term 3 module programme which explores all phases of programming a festival or arts organization and producing an artistic work: spread over a longer period of time to dive into all phases and challenges in the participants’ field of action. There will be plenary as well as small working groups and specific sessions more focused on either the production or artistic side, as well as one-on-one mentoring to answer the needs of all participants. The training also focusses on the relation between the artistic and production side.
