18 MAY 2022 TO 21 MAY 2022, Brussels
With open minds and open hearts, integrity and fun, this four-day workshop is willing to dig into the current urgencies and problematics of producing work as well as being a producer.
With approaches sometimes experimental (have you heard of the fairy purse?) or deeply technical (art(ists) still need to cross borders), the Academy would like to explore how to practice values of cooperation and collaboration, care and solidarity, empowerment and enjoyment, tackling the questions of (self)-care, fair practices, transnational practices, as well as the nitty gritty of producing performing arts, playing with budgets, and maybe reinventing one-self.
The different subjects will be explored while talking, listening, walking or playing, using the expertise within the room as well as inspirational guests.
The Producers’ Academy is open to:
– People from all nationalities
– People who have at least five years of experience as a producer in the performing arts sector
– Producers/cultural entrepreneurs who have developed or are in the process of developing innovative way(s) to support creation in an international dimension and/or with a trans-sectorial approach (decolonisation, feminism, fair practices, climate change, accessibility etc.)
– The event will be held exclusively in English. Therefore, participants need to be able to understand, communicate and work in English.
CIFAS will offer 3 grants (travel and/or accommodation) to support producers from countries where little or no financial support is available for international mobility.
