THINK BIG! Coordinating Large-scale Projects and Festivals
An online Course by Node Center

If you want to venture into large-scale projects, this course will give you the practical tools to skillfully coordinate them. Feel confident to step it up and get your big idea off the ground.

Whether your idea is a festival, a thematic week, a multi-platform exhibition, or a brand-new format, the number of abilities needed to effectively realise the initial idea is often at first unknown or under-evaluated. Having a wide overview of the different steps that will appear from the very beginning is essential to make your unique project successful.

This course will address the main elements of large-scale project management: from the concept formulation to the evaluation of its viability, from the research of fundings and partners to dealing with an expanding team and tights schedules, from acknowledging existing communication and management tools to finally making it happen! The course will dive through a variety of examples and presents several internet-based tools that will help you organize your time, your team and your resources.

This course is ideal for curators and cultural managers who have had some experience in small-mid size projects (making small exhibition, working for a commercial gallery) and who want to venture in the production of festivals or larger-scale projects with larger teams.

*Live video-conferences every Tuesday at 7pm Central European Time. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
