International Meeting of Independent Performing Arts Producers

Special Guest: PAM Meeting by Reso - Dance Network Switzerland

23 March 2021 | 09.00 – 14.00 CET | online | for free

Following our international producers´ meetings in Budapest (2017), Barcelona (2018) and Düsseldorf (2016/18) and our first digital meeting in November 2020 we are now moving on: 


Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (DTD), the German Dance Association, together with Berlin Performing Arts Program (PAP), is inviting you to two international meetings for and with producers in the independent performing arts: 23 March 2021 and 04 May 2021.


The registraton for the meeting on 23 March 2021 is NOW open (please see below).


We will get to know newly established producers` networks, initiatives, and offices; we will exchange news and ideas with old acquaintances, meet new colleagues, make friends, and: we will dive into a collective brainstorming around the question “How to lobby? 


How to lobby and join forces … for fair practices? For more recognition for the producers` role, for better working conditions, for appropriate payment and structural funding for producers/production offices, for creating a profession attracting emerging producers, for strengthening diversity and including colleagues not having access to specific networks yet.


Together with the PAM Meeting we want to tackle these and other questions and exchange know-how, experiences, and ideas how to lobby for the producers` profession in the context of the entire independent performing art scene – be it on regional, national or global level, be our addressees policy makers, funding bodies, other arts professionals or our audiences. 


Since 2016, Reso organises regularly Performing Arts Manager Meetings in Switzerland. The PAM Meetings connect producers and diffusion managers from the fields of dance and theatre and foster their exchange and knowledge transfer. Within the framework of their PAM Meetings, Reso initiated a discussion amongst producers on fair practices which resulted in a Manifesto for Fair Practices and a national poster campaign.


Let`s join forces, let`s learn from each other and develop the idea across borders!


The registration is open until 21 March 2021.
