15 April | Create your project plan

What will you learn during this evening?
How do you put down your ideas clearly on paper? How do you write a project plan that is in line with who you are and your artistic vision, and which is also in line with funds and financial backers? Open up your notebook already. In the workshop of this evening, we will delve deeper into your artistic identity, dive into the theory and set to work on writing exercises. From initial idea to fully-fledged project plan; that will soon become second nature to you.
