Spoffin Pro meeting 2016
For accredited professionals from abroad and from Holland, Spoffin organizes a series of special meetings during the festival. Spoffin has a team of multilingual festival guides to assist the pro’s during their stay. All pro’s (both programmers and artists) can meet while they eat.
Saturday: Festival Volunteers: How to tease them, please them and keep them aboard
11:00-12:30h. The importance of voluntary labor in Europe’s outdoor festivals.
Sunday: Pitch of Plans
11:00-12:30h. During Spoffin we organize the Pitch of Plans. A lively and speedy line-up of fresh and new ideas for future shows in the streets of Europe. Artists get the opportunity to present plans for new work for next year and beyond on Sunday August 28, for an audience of festival organizers from all over Europe.
In a maximum of 3 minutes artists can tell, beam, project, let us hear or show what the audiences can expect in 2017 and beyond. After the Pitch we will organize a ‘meet while we eat’ with all artists and professionals. This way we hope to create opportunities for creation co-production, residencies, early buys or quick gigs.
Pitching is free of cost. Spoffin will provide a smooth set-up with a sound system, a beamer, a microphone and a lunch. We will present a maximum of 15 pitches and will try to present a wide range of different ideas. All Pitches in English!
Proposals for the Pitch of Plans are possible by filling in the registration following the link below before the 30th of July. Please mark ‘I am a Pitcher’ in the registration.
