Thanks to their international and multidisciplinary approach, they are clearly distinct from other arts organisations in Flanders, and thus deSingel is considered a centre of excellence among European arts centres. deSingel is always welcoming new initiatives and projects, and therefore it is very meaningful for them to host and collaborateand is the ideal partner for  on this new training format, following 4 co-organising four editions of Module I of the Festival Production Management Training – Module I. 

“The arts have the advantage to carry a lot of stories in itself. To filter and foster these stories and to communicate them to a wide public at the moment this public is open for it, is one of the pleasurable challenges of communication in the arts. It is our ambition to inspire and mobilize as many people as possible, a mission we share with The Festival Academy. That is why we also host and support this communication & new technologies training. Be our guests."       Jerry Aerts, Director deSingel
