About the workshop

We are happy to announce the arrival of one of the most successful promoter in the field of performing arts Iva Horvat, cofounder of ArtRepublic agency. Workshop is aiming at producers and artists. It is based on individual case studies and couching that will help you to form long-term strategy of work and presence in different international markets. Work will be individualized and practical. Workshop is appropriate for development of ideas and project in every stage.

The goal of this workshop is to develop a personalized strategic plan for each project, in relation of its internationalization and its projection on the specific market (home or abroad, for a festival or coproduction). You can use the workshop to reflect on your career vision and goals. By sharing information on the functioning of different environments, and through comprehension and assimilation of the tools, we put in practice methods of work. 70% of the workshop is praxis, elaboration of the strategy of the proper project, communication with the others and presentation of your project to a group of professionals.

Workshop will give you an opportunity to analyze environments in different countries of the world. You will map festivals and visibility spots for the project. You will develop marketing strategies and promotion. We will speak about values and principles to elaborate a profile in an environment, along with creativity in forming new and unique methods and forms of work.
