What is a development plan? What is its purpose? How is it built? How can this tool help us adapt to unexpected events or new development opportunities? After all, it is an integral part of any project creation or company development process. This workshop will give artists, performance makers, and cultural workers in circus arts an overview of the process of designing and executing a development plan and point them to resources that they can use to continue to enhance their skills.
This workshop is designed for cultural workers, artists, and other circus professionals.
Note: If you are working on a project with a collaborator (artistic duo partner, business partner, etc.) who would like to join the workshop and share your individualized follow-up hour with the instructor, please contact En Piste. We may be able to register your collaborator without impacting the maximum participant quota.
