OPEN CALL The Producing the Future participants’ module

Published on

This module is for curious, enterprising professionals with experience in production, business management, curating, programming or mediating who aim to become creative producers.

The DAS Graduate School of the Academy of Theatre and Dance is setting up a new Master's Degree programme called Creative Producing - Creative Entrepreneurship in the Arts. This programme will commence in the 2017-18 academic year and is open to candidates from all arts disciplines. Prior to the start of the programme, we will organise a first module, which will run from November 2016 through February 2017.

The Producing the Future module by Juha van ’t Zelfde

The Producing the Future module will be developed and run by DJ, programmer and curator Juha van ’t Zelfde. Van ’t Zelfde, artistic director of the Lighthouse Brighton production company, will apply his own working methods within the framework of the module and, working with participants, test these methods against current practice. With the aid of theory, lectures, case studies, peer learning and individual coaching, Van ’t Zelfde will approach the subject from an economic perspective to examine the effect of developments in society on the function of the creative producer.

DAS Creative Producing - Creative Entrepreneurship in the Arts

The proposed two-year interdisciplinary Master's Degree in Creative Producing is designed for professionals in the arts who aim to become creative producers. Creative producers combine the role of producer with those of programmer, curator, financial director, and, armed with a personal artistic vision, move effortlessly between the arts, the general public, and potential and existing investors. They are above all innovators, and adept at generating public, political and financial support for artists and their work.
