Whether staging concerts, booking speakers for talks, organising screenings or hosting readings, this course will help you to curate ambitious public programming by equipping you with the tools to conceptualise, produce and run events successfully.

With a particular focus on the production required for programming music performances, this course will take you through how to secure bookings, develop trusting relationships with artists and their representatives, find information on forthcoming tours and opportunities, flight-sharing and hospitality. Digging into the administrative side, we will cover budgeting including tax matters, as well as co-productions and financial partnerships. We will also explore the technical aspects of staging events, communication strategies and how to shape the audience experience in both a personalised and professional way.

The course will provide practical tools, insights and examples of how to program and produce events, with weekly assignments. At the end of the course, the participants will be able to design a curated program that outlines the production and financial aspects to realise it.

*Video conferences every Thursday at 3pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
