Mentors and Guest speakers

During Module I of the Festival Production Management Training 2019, the participants will be guided by two mentors whom under Roy Luxford's falicitation, will share their  experiences during the different working sessions. Along with the mentors, a set of guest speakers will participate to working sessions, giving participants an opportunity to openly exchange and question production management. These speakers include among others Jerry Aerts (Director deSingel International Arts Campus – Belgium, Fleur van Muiswinkel (Artistic Coordinator visual & performing arts nona arts centre – Belgium / The Netherlands) and Femke Gyselinck(Rehearsal Leader Rosas – Belgium). 

Participants will also benefit from numerous informal occasions in addition to the presentations and in this way participants can really make a connection to the speakers and maximise their experience.

"Lectures were for me the most interesting format, since they were, in fact, open talks. The lecturers were genuinely open to receive our questions and concerns and to share their tremendous experience, which was quite profitable for me. Leadership and facilitation were smooth and efficient during the whole program." Teresa Miguel, Portugal, Participant FPMT 2018
