Producers' Academy 2022

An international group of producers gather with peers for 4 days in Brussels during Kunstenfestivaldesarts.

The Producers' Academy is a dedicated time to reflect, think, co-learn, encounter, and provoke the practice of the producer. With open minds and open hearts, integrity and fun, this 4-day workshop is willing to dig into the current urgencies and problematics of producing work as well as being a producer.

With approaches sometimes experimental or deeply technical, we would like to explore how to practice values of cooperation and collaboration, care and solidarity, empowerment and enjoyment, tackling the questions of (self)-care, fair practices, transnational practices, as well as the nitty gritty of producing performing arts, playing with budgets, and maybe reinventing one-self.

The different subjects will be explored while talking, listening, walking or playing, using the expertise within the room as well as inspirational guests.
