Organised in partnership with FTA – Festival TransAmériques, The Festival Academy is delighted to invite emerging festival managers to meet with expert festival leaders, artists and cultural activists for the 19th edition of Atelier for Young Festival Managers.
The Atelier will take place in person in Montréal, Québec – Canada, from 1 – 7 June 2022.
Applications are now open! Apply here before 31 October 2021!
The Atelier offers the opportunity to up to 35 young festival managers from all over the word to spend 7 days together with a group of young and experienced festival leaders, cultural activists, cross-sector experts and artists in Montréal (Canada) – during the Festival TransAmériques – to have a global conversation about today’s challenges and the role that festivals, art and culture can play in these.
The Atelier is about: gaining new perspectives, exploring the essence of the why and how of (your) festivals in a global context, share and exchange experiences and reflect on the topics that concern you. Mentors and guest speakers share their rich experience and answer participants’ questions along the way, acting not only as lecturers but also as true mentors and allowing participants an honest and open insight into their careers, including both success stories and failures.
During the Atelier, participants will also have the chance to attend performances at the Festival TransAmériques, meet with artists and production teams and discover the identity and the behind-the-scenes of this inspiring international festival.
