“Young” in the Atelier’s title refers first of all to the festival managers being “young in the festival business”. The participants represent a broad diversity of cultural and professional backgrounds – from students in arts management, to young managers working for large established organisations, to emerging curators running their own innovative international festivals. They all share the desire to implement excellent artistic festivals.
Who is the programme for?
The Atelier addresses early career artistic directors, programmers and curators working for art organisations or festivals, as well as those working in a programme related department in a festival. Participants leave the Atelier with extended programming skills, a broad new personal and professional network, and inspiration for new (collaboration) projects.
“I have learnt the importance of dreaming, doing and creating with or without resources in an equitable way that not only transforms people but also space and other sectors” Marisa Benson, participant at the Atelier
