Where will your idea take place?

Avignon, France

Why does Europe need your idea?

To put young professionals of theater together, sharing an important festival, living an amazing experience, being in the first professionnal network that allow them to be linked with young artists but also with professionnals they met in Avignon and whith whom they create a professional relation.

What is your impact?

The successful outcome will be to have brought young artists, coming from one side and the other of the mediterranean, to meet, to talk, to listen, to share, to discuss, to write, to create and to collaborate on multinational projects.
All this will contribute in the creation of an active network including
-partners structures, involved in the support of the young actors, directors and choreographers,
connecting them and opening them opportunities.

How do you get there?

In april 2016, launch the call for applications, receive the applications and ensure that it meet the criteria and make the choice of the participants, informe the selected candidates, have the confirmation of their participation and proceed to the administrative procedures.
In may and june, preparation of the masterclass in substance (selection of the plays to see in july, with the partners), and for the logistics.
In july, holding of the masterclass : attend programmed plays and professional meetings ; attend sessions of analysis and debriefing ; participate in writing theater criticism on the blog specialy created for the occasion.
After august, bilon of the masterclass and animation of the blog that will be the support of the network.

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

The target group is constituted by different groups :
-the young artists, practitioners or students, from Europ and the arab world.
-the intervenants, confermed artists from european and arab countries
-the partner structures and their network, that will contribute to all the process (from selection to networking).
All these groups will be connected, and will constitute year after year a significant body of professionals linked by a common interest in all perfoming arts.

What makes your idea stand apart?

A triple context justifies this project : socio-political (radicalisation has been feeded by unknowledge, mistrust and fear) ; professional: theatrical practice is feeded of theory, observation, exchange and experimentation, through the non-formal education ; financial and technical: participate in a theater festival has a very important cost that few can bear. We provide answers.
If we don't do it, it is a missed opportunity to contribute to social cohesion and cultural enrichment.
