Application Deadline: November 22, 2021
Are you searching for ways to make your artistic work stand out on social media or looking for the right tools for adapting and creating live performances for the screen? Digital Leap are now calling for circus and dance artists who are curious about digitalisation to take part in the first two of four total learning modules.
The Digital Leap learning modules are 5-day events combining theory about and hands-on training in digital platforms from different perspectives. The modules offer you an opportunity to develop different skills in digitalisation. Topics range from promoting and presenting performances by using digital tools, creating new artistic works in digital and virtual environments, and learning how to employ them in a way that best suits your own artistic practice. Experts of different disciplines will act as teachers, mentors and facilitators.
Although Digital Leap believe in the possibilities of digital tools, they think creating and getting new ideas works best through face-to-face encounters. Therefore they want to bring artists together in spring 2022 for 5-day learning modules in Prague (CZ) and Vilnius (LT). The learning modules are organised in connection with a local festival and are therefore an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues and presenters from across Europe.
The overall aim for Digital Leap is to produce relevant digital learning materials from each module. The materials will be made available to the performing arts communities in the partner countries to extend the gained knowledge to even more artists.
The learning modules are free of charge for all selected participants. Digital Leap will cover the travel and accommodation costs of the participants. Meals, local transportation and other costs will be at participants’ own expense. The module in Prague will take place 14-18 February 2022, and the module in Vilnius from 2-6 May 2022.
The programme is open to professional circus and dance artists based in Czech Republic, France, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, Spain or Sweden.
