Training Opportunities for Young Arts & Event Managers

The International Federation for Choral Music announces two new training opportunities for young event and arts managers in the field of choral music:

  • International Study Tour for Arts Managers - International Chamber-Choir Competition, Marktoberdorf, Germany, 29 May – 3 June 2009
    Offering young managers a chance to combine musical impressions and experiences with a seminar on how to organize an international choir competition. The work in a small group, the observation of the competition, the direct contact to its director and manager and the possibility to talk to the staff and to have a look back stage, are an excellent opportunity for young organizers to improve their skills and knowledge. The closing date for applications is 15 March 2009.
  • Youth Event Management Programme - EUROPA CANTAT, Utrecht, The Netherlands, 10 - 26 July 2009
    A special training programme for young organisers and managers including workshops and presentations offered by an international group of experienced managers. Participants will get extensive insider information on dealing with the essentials of running major international events, ranging from production to fundraising and communication. A personal coach will guide them as they work as part of the international festival team and take on an important part of the festival organisation. Closing date for applications is 15 December 2008.
