The current Corona pandemic has driven artists to connect and communicate online even more than before. With climate change in mind and less traveling, we can continue to benefit from the digital age after these times. Not (only) as an alternative to the live experience, but as a positive potential.
A hands-on toolbox with new perspectives on online communication and creation
EDN and Dansmakers Amsterdam invite artists and dance professionals to join two intense days of work on the topic of online communication with the aim to contribute to the building of sustainable artistic practices.
The Atelier will take place online on June 11 and 12, and includes a hands-on crash course designed specifically for choreographers and dance makers.
Building sustainable artistic practices with experts and makers
A future-proof artistic practice requires learning from other areas, sharing processes and building communities. During this two-day online atelier & crash course we will let frontrunners and professionals talk about and work on the theme 'How to communicate [about] your work'. Each day consists of morning and afternoon sessions of about two and a half hours each where one part of the day consists of several short lectures with Q&A's and break-out sessions. The other part of the day is a hands-on crash course with tips and tricks for making films for the web with simple equipment. The atelier will be moderated by Andrea van Wingerden.
During these two days various facets of online communication will be zoomed in. Building relationships in the virtual world will be discussed, as well as collaborating, promoting and sharing work online. In addition, tools will be provided that contribute to sustainability and artistic development, also after the Corona times.
It is by no means our intention to replace the live experience and live communication. We believe in the positive potential for artists to redefine their digital communication. The atelier is a pilot around the theme 'How to communicate [about] your work' and is a collaboration between Dansmakers Amsterdam and European Dancehouse Network. The pilot could be a starting point for a platform or community on a European level.
