Application to Producers’ Academy training programme, dl 2.2.2020


The fifth edition of the Producers’ Academy, training programme focused on international production in the performing arts will take place in May 2020. 

Online applications: before 02.02.2020   

CIFAS is preparing a new programme with workshops, talks, lectures and meeting sessions, organised in the frame of Kunstenfestivaldesarts.

The Producers’ Academy increasingly pays attention to the notion of care, one of the fundamental concepts of feminism, and explores attentive and responsive practices, social and sustainable approaches in order to potentially invent new, adapted and fairer models of governance.

-How do we understand the different contexts of international production?
-How do we go beyond the distribution model of touring and develop more meaningful relationships?
-How do we plan for more inclusion in the field of arts and culture?
-To what extent can we tackle cross-border and regional financial inequalities?
-How do we work across borders and cultures, taking into account environmental issues?
-How do we produce in a world that is turning more and more towards nationalism and conservatism?
-How do we combine and balance private and professional realities?

By meeting with experts and practitioners, participants will approach practical aspects of international collaborations – administrative, legal and financial issues – as well as conceptual aspects, in order to imagine innovative production models that reinvent our global cultural landscape.
