Fra 2. til 7. september arrangerer Assitej Artistic Gathering på Sandfestivalen i Kristiansand, og vi i Scenekunstbruket er tilstede med flere arrangementer.
Tirsdag 3. september kl 09.00 TEEN Kitchen Table
The ‘TEEN Kitchen Table’ will see teenagers, Programme Managers, and Creative Professionals & Artists come together around a ‘Kitchen Table’ to debate what it means for teenage audiences to “Confront the Unknown” when they attend the theatre. A diverse group of teenagers coming from across Europe will moderate and lead a discussion that explores the unknown plots that may unfold, the unknown artistic tastes that may develop, and the unknown futures that may emerge. This event is presented as part of ‘TEEN Ambassadors Across Europe’, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union that aims to establish best practice audience development strategies in order meaningfully engage with teenage audiences.
Onsdag 4. september kl 12.00 Co-curating Workshop
This workshop presents a work-in- progress methodology that aims to establish consensus between teenagers, Programmers, and School Teachers in order to co-programme performances and festivals for teenage audiences. Being made open to public delegates for the very first time, this workshop is presented as part of the ‘TEEN Ambassadors Across Europe’, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union that aims to establish best practice audience development strategies in order meaningfully engage with teenage audiences. Please note that it is suggested (though certainly not a requirement) that attendees may like to watch the midday performance of “About Shadows” on Tuesday 3rd September that this workshop will be focused on.
