Creative producer in an international landscape:
Between the local and global – between artistic creation and strategy.

Arranged in collaboration with the Waves Festival as part of the Waves Xtra programme.

Where: STARS, Algade 84, 4760 Vordingborg

The second Producers’ Platform will focus on how creative producers increasingly find themselves at two junctions – helping artists navigate between the local and the global and aiding artistic creation whilst ensuring a strategic and sustainable development.

We are delighted to welcome Kerstin Schroth, General Director of Mette Ingvartsen’s Brussels based company Great Investment. Kerstin will frame the day with a key-note talk where she will reflect on working as a producer in what may be described as a symbiotic relationship with Mette Ingvartsen – a truly international artist with a local connection.

Kerstin Schroth is a curator and arts manager who lives in Berlin and Paris, a graduate in Cultural Studies from the University of Hildesheim, Germany. After a period of 10 years as a production manager for international festivals, she founded in 2006 the annual summer bar during the festival Tanz im August, a programme which she curated for 6 years. Since 2006 she has also been the company manager of Great Investment. Besides, Kerstin lectures at the university of Gießen, K3 Hamburg, Sommerakademie Berlin and at DOCH in Sweden.

The exact programme of the day as well as the preparation required from participants will be advertised on 15th August. Participants will be asked to use their own practice as case and to reflect on it.

So, come and join us for a whole day in Vordingborg. For people based in Copenhagen, a bus will depart from Udviklingsplatformen’s office at Otto Busses Vej 5a at 8:30am, returning from Vordingborg at around 10pm.
