mlogo-efa-european-festivals-associationApply by 30 September for the first edition of the Training for Production Managers, with Module I in Antwerp, Belgium, 20 – 23 January 2016

Make use of a unique opportunity to meet colleague production manaLogo_ProductionManagers_Applygers – young and new leaders – from various festivals. Exchange innovative ideas and create partnerships with your peers. And be guided by experienced production managers. The Festival Production Management Training enables you to discover new ways of working with artists and of handling the practical side of festival management.

The Festival Production Management Training is a new format of The Festival Academy, an initiative of the European Festivals Association (EFA). It focuses especially on production management in terms of realising and implementing the vision of the artistic director. The training looks at the practical side of this process, with special attention given to working with artists. Participants will meet and exchange with experienced production managers and artists, including set designers, light designers, conductors, choir leaders etc. The training is set up as a long-term programme which explores all phases of producing an artistic work: a programme with 3 modules spread over a period of one or more year(s).

“Once the artistic programme has been defined, be it a guest performance or a coproduction, the realisation and implementation has to start. The artistic vision needs to be analysed and translated into a practical and realistic production plan. At this point, the production manager enters the scene. He/she plays a very important role in a festival and in realising a smooth process from idea to launch of a performance or production for the audience.”
Hugo De Greef, General Coordinator The Festival Academy
