Forum for partnerships between the business and independent performing arts sectors

In 2020, The Development Platform initiated a forum to explore possibilities, establish connections and lay the groundwork for strategic partnerships between business people and independent performing artists. This resulted in a partnership manual for strategic partnerships, designed for independent performing artists and companies. See the manual here ( in Danish)

The forum was facilitated by Martin Buck Hegaard of BARC Scandinavia and former director of The Development Platform, Egil Bjørnsen.

Creative Producers

Further professional training for performing arts producers and self-producing performance artists. The training consisted of five modules spread across approximately one year; the modules could either be taken separately or in tangent. ‘Creative Producers’ was established and run in collaboration with The Danish National School of Performing Arts (Den Danske Scenekunstskoles Efter og videreuddannelse), as a further professional training programme, and ran from 2018 to 2019.
