The Future Leaders in Performing Arts

The Future Leaders in Performing Arts is a new peer-to-peer network for emerging cultural leaders in the performing arts in the Nordic-Baltic regions. The network is built slowly and sustainably through a mentoring process. In the network’s inaugural year, four creative practitioners together with a group of mentors gather to explore and conceive questions and possibilities in updating power structures in the field of theater, dance and performance.

The network recognizes the systemic barriers for participation in leadership roles in societies today. The participants are individually and collectively passionate in carving new pathways, challenging the existing paradigm and promoting new trajectories and paths to positions of agency and leadership.

Network Partners:
Tampere Theatre Festival (Finland)
Festspillene i Nord-Norge (Norway)
New Theatre Institute of Latvia / International Festival of Contemporary Theatre, Homo Novus (Latvia)
Teater Grob (Denmark)

The Future Leaders in Performing Arts network is supported by the Nordic Culture Point and Operation Pirkanmaa.
