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. For information on the application process and participation fee click here.

Take a group of creative souls or those interested in arts and culture to a new place. Give them an intense period of discussion time, and access to some of the leading and inspiring festival managers across the world...It was inevitable that we were going to walk away re-energised, re-vitalised and ready to go back to our everyday lives with a renewed sense of ourselves and the work we do.
