Call for Applicants announced
Szczecin Philharmonic announces a Call for Applicants for its innovative international education & development programme.

Launched with an international call for applicants, the Szczecin Philharmonic is delighted to announce details of its innovative and ambitious international education and development programme: Music.Multimedia.Management., scheduled to run through 2021/2022. Registration starts on 16th March 2021 with applications open from 1st April to 5th May 2021. Ideally, participants would have a background in the arts, be currently working in an arts-related sector and be interested in developing and enhancing their skills overall in the creative arts arena. Through this enterprising, carefully crafted and forward-thinking development scheme, they will gain a greater awareness of all aspects of the whole creative and production process.
The initial on-line tuition is free, followed by a subsidised two week practical training period in Poland or Norway and a two month paid internship in Poland or Norway for selected candidates to develop their practical skills in the creation and production of international arts projects. It aims to assist young musicians, artists, aspiring culture managers and arts professionals in acquiring new skills, to equip participants to pursue professional job opportunities, to broaden the idea of interdisciplinary arts, to promote effective use of new technologies and to grow audiences and enhance international collaboration in the arts sector.

Supported by EEA Grants, the programme, has been curated in close partnership with Fjord Cadenza, Norway and the TRAFO Centre for Contemporary Art in Szczecin and will provide access for working with specific artistic events and institutions throughout the programme, including the Music.Design.Form Festival in Szczecin, the International Lutoslawski Youth Orchestra, the Fjord Cadenza Festival and three in-house Gallery exhibitions.

Each module in the programme is comprised of a series of webinars and masterclasses showcasing a wide range of experts, experienced tutors and special guests. The list of modules is diverse and includes Audience Development, Music Education, Artist Management, Team Management, Art Curation, Sound (Design & Engineering) and Light & Multimedia.

Each module will provide participants with useful and relevant historical, geographical and social contexts to each topic, will include case studies and provide helpful strategies to overcome challenges and obstacles in the given field, all with the aim of providing the participants with an essential tool-kit for their future development whilst stressing the overall important interconnectivity between the various modules as they relate to the creative arts sector.
