At its heart, the West Kowloon’s Producers’ Network Meeting and Forum is about the crucial role of conversations and connections. Effective networks bring together the right people and facilitate robust discussions that have the potential to lead to clear actions and outcomes.
To illustrate this, we have invited colleagues from our global network to share their experiences of working in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region at the opening Public Forum of this year’s Producers’ Network Meeting and Forum. Titled From Networks to Co-productions: Case studies from Asia and Europe, the forum offers a platform for professionals to highlight the importance of networks and how they can influence the way we reimagine co-productions at a time when arts funding and resources are increasingly limited. Through case studies from their respective cities, they will share their thoughts on how to establish and use networks to effectively connect people, venues, capital, technology and marketing, and collaboratively create high-quality, visionary works.
The public forum is open to all. Join us to hear producers from China, Japan, Australia, Iceland and Germany to talk about their work with examples from SMG Live (China), TPAM (Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama), Asia TOPA (Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts in Melbourne), Iceland Airwaves Music Festival, and the European Dancehouse Network.
