conference within TRIGGER 2022 platform
We are happy to invite you to a second conference on decentralization of culture that will happen within TRIGGER 2022 platform for internationalisation of performing arts. This year’s focus is audience building.
How do we approach audience building in environments outside centres of power? What are the obstacles faced by stakeholders in culture? What are examples of innovative practices from Slovenia and how do we build long term relations through art in our communities?
Conference will gather the pioneers of innovative practices of audience development from different cities around Slovenia and is aiming to encourage the debate between different stake-holders on the performing arts scene. Because we know that decentralization will not happen by itself. And is a necessary precondition for a greater inclusion of different audiences.
You can apply here until Sunday, March 27.
We are looking forward to see you in Maribor.

More about TRIGGER 2022 platform
TRIGGER is a platform for contemporary performing arts. Glej Theatre is developing it with Centre for Creativity, Bunker, City of Women, Moment, Pekinpah, Mladinsko Theatre and Maska (The New Post Office programme). The main purpose of the platform is to strengthen competences of independent producers and artists, especially in the field of internationalisation and international connections. The platform combines a showcase of performances with potential for the international market, series of discussions, lectures and workshops with curators from international festivals, agents, and specialists for distribution and international cooperation. The purpose of the platform is therefore to gain specialised knowledge of developing strategies and methodology to distribute, network and internationalise contemporary performing arts.
