NEXT Peforming Arts Management School EX

  • Organization : Nevula Extra Support
  • Section : Project for improvements in the creative environment
  • Type of Grant Program : Single

This program unites Nevula Extra Support with Explat, an intermediate support organization that develops human resources for performing arts professionals and works to enhance their working environments, to create a workshop called “Performing Arts Productions and Crossing the Border 2: Building Strategies and Honing Skills for Overseas Performances in 2021 and Beyond.” With Yoko Nishiyama serving as the lead instructor, the workshop will welcome numerous guest presenters to give participants firsthand insight into a wide variety of international projects—from overseas performances and invitation performances to international co-productions—and pave the way for independent, dynamic creators to make an impact on the performing arts landscape in and after 2021.
The program will also create and release an archive of select publishable materials from the Next Performing Arts Management School’s lecture series, which dates back to 2012.
