Following four editions of the Atelier for Young Festival Managers – Görlitz, Germany (2006), Varna, Bulgaria (2009), Singapore (2011) and Izmir, Turkey (2011) – 20 Alumni gathered for the first time from 23-25 May 2012 in Bergen, at the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of the European Festivals Association (EFA). Together with presenters such as Bernard Faivre d'Arcier, Steve Austen, Hugo De Greef and Ching-Lee Goh, they discussed the personal and professional impacts of the Atelier as well as its future and their involvement in it. Due to the high interest of managers, EFA extends the deadline of application for the fifth edition in Ljubljana until 30 June 2012.
EFA invites its members from 40 countries, partner networks such as the African Festival Association AFRIFESTNET, the Association of Asian Performing Arts Festivals (AAPAF) and the FestArab initiative, festivals, cultural organisations, networks, foundations, universities etc to delegate a young festival manager to participate in the Atelier LJUBLJANA 2012 which will take place 14-21 October 2012. The LJUBLJANA Atelier will see a broad diversity of participants represented – a unique chance for 45 young artistic festival directors from different artistic disciplines to meet their peers from around the world and to exchange with renowned festival managers. In lectures, one-to-one talks, group discussions as well as intense workshops on case studies, issues such as artistic vision, political and social responsibility, internationalisation, networking, renewal and sustainability will be explored.
The Atelier – initiated by the European Festivals Association – is guided by the motto "Car le vrai rôle d'un festival est d'aider les artistes à oser, à entreprendre des projets," borrowed from Bernard Faivre d'Arcier, longstanding Director of the Avignon Festival. It is an intense and rigorous 7 days training platform addressed at emerging artistic festival directors or those who have ambitions to become involved in programming or in programming related departments within a festival. It is all about formulating experiences and passing on knowledge to a next generation of festival makers: knowledge about programming a festival, thematically focusing on the very essence of arts festivals: the art and the artist. Young festival managers from all over the world are invited to apply.
