European Theatre Academy call for applications

29.03.2018 |

The European Theatre Convention (ETC) invites theatre professionals from all over Europe to take part in their 4th annual Academy taking place in July, and applications close in 2 weeks, on Sunday 15th April.

ETC’s Academy will include master classes and workshops over a 5 day programme, from Thursday 5th to Monday 9th July 2018. The Academy is a great opportunity for Baltic region partners to engage with other European collaborators. The Academy aims to expand the knowledge and skill set of individuals who have the goal of current and future potential theatre curation and festival management in mind.   

Much of the content focuses on theatre in the European context, covering a broad range of issues including  organisational management, administration, finance, legalities, funding, curation, touring and how to access foreign markets.

Baltic Sea Region arts and cultural professionals have experienced a sense of isolation and disconnect from the European scene as a whole, so events like this are a great opportunity for networking and collaboration, as well as learning what the rest of the Union is up to, theatrically speaking.  

The Academy will run for 5 days and details of how to apply, as well as the application form can be found here. Successful applicants will pay a fee of €300 which covers the programme itself, tickets to some performances at the Festival D’Avignon, accommodation and breakfast daily. Transport to Avignon is at the participant’s expense.   

The European Theatre Academy is organised in collaboration with PEARLE* and the project "ENGAGE - Empowering today's audiences through challenging theatre" which is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. 

The European Theatre Academy will be held from Thursday 5th to Sunday 9th July 2018, during the Festival d’Avignon, in Avignon, France. You can read more about the Academy on the ETC website.
