Summer School: How contemporary artists can acquire the knowledge, skills and connection to develop their career?
WHEN: Monday 24 to Friday 28 August 2020
WHERE: Maastricht & Tilburg
LANGUAGE: English
FEE: €450 incl. VAT/BTW*
This intensive summer school focuses on new ways of learning for artists and gives them the opportunity to concentrate on their profession. By giving them the possibility to gather pivotal knowledge, skills and connections, it physically supports the participants to develop themselves as professional artists and initiate and enrich their professional network. Through a period of 5 days, artists from across the world will be immersed in the Dutch and international cultural scene. They will learn about specific and relevant professional topics that most academies are lacking in the curriculum proposed.
Participants will gain and share knowledge about:
• Explore the dynamics of the art world and meet pivotal stakeholders.
• Examine and reflect on career paths, the structure of the art world and the possible identities of the artist.
• Outline on art world funding structures in Europe and beyond, including public funding, private sponsorship, crowdfunding and philanthropy systems.
• Explore and develop individual career strategies and promotion skills.
• Introduce professionally related issues such as intellectual property, publishing, writing, rates of pay, arts management, copyright, finance and budgeting and self-resilience.
• Discuss and share knowledge about sustainable models for artists.
• Discuss about the role of alternative spaces, residency and artists’ exchange opportunities.
