Producers’ Academy, created two years ago by CIFAS, is focussing on entrepreneurship for young European producers working in the performing arts. During four days, professional producers have the opportunity to follow conferences, workshops and peer-to-peer learning sessions.
The third edition of the Producers’ Academy proposes a global reflection on how professional producers can deploy their skills as cultural ambassadors. Throughout the programme mixing workshops, case studies and round tables, participants will be invited to question their own practice through several philosophical and political filters. This year, the sector will be specifically approached through the prism of care, one of the fundamental concept of feminism.
How to define production today?
Where does it stand in the cultural sector?
How to put it in perspective with cultural rights of the Declaration of Human Rights?
How to adapt the methods of negotiation to specific cultural contexts?
What are the main problems met in production?
How to work efficiently while respecting and understanding different cultural realities of the partners?
These questions will be raised during 4 days of workshops devoted to international productions. Through sessions facilitated by experts and practitioners, we will approach practical aspects of international collaborations including administrative, legal and financial issues. We will also discuss the subject in a more conceptual manner, while questioning innovative production models that reinvent the global cultural landscape.
The programme will be articulated around presentations by professionals, exchange and sharing of experiences sessions as well as presentations of working tools.
