In addition to the three-day biennial showcase in Brighton, caravan offers a series of training opportunities. In 2015, we offered two training days to theatre makers who were new to international work.
Tuesday 19 May, 10am – 5.15pm
Shoreditch Town Hall, London
Tuesday 16 June, 10am – 5.15pm
The Lowry, Salford
The day was aimed at artists and organisations who were established nationally, but who wanted to take their first steps in exploring their international ambition. The course outline started from the assumption that the artist was an international beginner.
The day was designed to give a practical overview of how working internationally could benefit you as an artist or as an organisation. It looked at:
• Artistic development
• Organisational development
• Types of work
• International opportunities
The caravan training day was led by Gary Hills, one of the Caravan mentors, who has 15 years experience of international working and production. There was also a session delivered by the British Council.
