workshops for circus producers

Baltic Nordic Circus Network will organise a workshop for circus producers and artists involved in production work of their company. The workshop is targeted for young professionals in circus producing (apprx. 2-4 years work experience) from the Baltic and the Nordic countries.

The focus of the workshop is developing touring in the Baltic Sea region. Participants should come with questions, challenges and ideas on how to solve issues relating to touring of independent circus companies in the Baltic Sea region. Prior experiences of tour management in the region are useful but not mandatory.

Participants of the workshop will also have a great opportunity to network with the Baltic and Nordic participants of the Circus Safety workshop, as well as the European circus professionals participating in the CASA Creative Europe project trip to Finland during the same dates.

The workshop will take place in Helsinki, Finland during August 25–26, 2016.

Baltic Nordic Circus Network will cover the accommodation costs (3 nights) and 3 meals per day during the two workshop days. Please note that each participant will take care of their own travels and travel costs. We recommend to travel to Helsinki on the 24th in the evening and depart on the 27th in the morning.

The workshop will be run and facilitated by two professionals in tour management and performing arts production from the region. One of the workshop facilitators is going to be Lars Wassrin, Director of International Relations in Cirkus Cirkör. The name of the second facilitator will be announced later.

The workshop is part of a development and education programme of Baltic Nordic Circus Network and is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers (Nordplus+ Adult).
