Organized in partnership with the Home for Cooperation through the Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival, The Festival Academy is excited to host emerging festival makers, cultural experts, artists, cultural activists, and cross-sector experts for the 20th edition of the Atelier for Young Festival Managers.
The Atelier will take place in Nicosia from 8 to 15 October, 2022.
Applications are now open. Deadline for applications is on 15 January 2022.
Atelier brings together up to
35 young festival managers from all over the
world to spend 7 days with a group of young and experienced festival
leaders, cultural activists, cross-sector experts, and artists in Nicosia
during the Buffer
Fringe Festival 2022, and
to engage in a global conversation about today’s challenges regarding
festivals, the role of art and culture in communities and contested spaces,
amongst other topics. The Atelier offers an opportunity to explore how
festivals can become spaces for exploring global issues and reflect upon the
role that festivals play within areas marked by conflict. We will explore how
festivals embody the possibility for fostering spaces for intergenerational
dialogue as well as change through culture.
Mentors and guest speakers go beyond their role as
lecturers and act as true mentors who will provide insightful feedback
regarding the participant’s current professional stage. They will also share
their experiences and showcase how success and failure can incite growth.
