“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.
The Atelier: gathering an enormous variety of creative minds.
About 35 festival managers coming from all over the world who are interested in the artistic aspects of festival management are selected. The Atelier upskills and informs you about the state of play of the world today and offers a time out to reflect critically on the role of festivals in today’s world, infused by people of different backgrounds and perspectives who can challenge and provoke our thinking or the way we do things.
