5-day workshop for international performing artists on Bornholm, where international experts helps you understand the potential of your artistic entrepreneurship, gets you ready to sell and moves you towards flow in your professional creative endeavours.
For artistic/administrative leaders & self-producing artists within
the performing arts field.
Give yourself the opportunity to take time out to reflect on your real purpose with your art, your unique competences, and your natural working flow – as a starting point for the creation of a business plan that truly works.
The aim of the workshop is double. First, to equip you with personal, artistic and strategic tools to understand and develop your work in an international context and understand and develop the leadership and teamwork of your organization. Second, to assist you in establishing a network of European collegues, a language to share and a method to collaborate with others. We also want to help you to be able to express yourself fluently on your artistic work in all contexts.
At the workshop you will create a clear vision for your work. You will get tools to understand how to work with your organization and team. You will learn to present and pitch your work - and get concrete artistic feedback of your work in an international context. You will work on a business plan with concrete actions. You will do a stakeholder/network analysis to understand the possibilities and organizations of the sector and your place in it. Your marketing and communications tools will be sharpened to master the international markets. And you will get advice on partnership collaborations and European networks and funding possibilities.
The workshop will be directed by BIRCAs director, mentor and international theatre producer Susanne Danig in collaboration with business coach, producer and promoter Sofie Haag/SE and cultural coach and innovator Pia Buchardt/DK, with guest teachers Yohann Floch from the FACE network and more specialists
