Official call of the European Festivals Association for the next edition of the ‘Atelier for Young Festival Managers’, a 7-days training programme, to take place in Ljubljana/Slovenia from 14-21 October 2012 with your network. Applications are still possible until 31 May 2012.
Mission of the Atelier
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 and President of the Lyon Biennial (France).
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.

Partners and city
The Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Ljubljana is initiated by the European Festivals Association and co-organised by the Ljubljana Festival, one of the most important festivals in the region. Since 60 years, the festival has hosted numerous internationally recognised artists. The Ljubljana Festival has been a member of EFA since 1977. Ljubljana is famous for its unique character: it has preserved its historical heritage and tradition while being a modern and relatively young city – the residents' average age is only slightly above 30. Ljubljana boasts one of the world's oldest philharmonic societies. Each year it hosts over 10,000 cultural events, from prestigious musical, theatre and art events to alternative and avant-garde events, notably including 14 international festivals.
