Following successful editions in 2014 and 2015 Afrovibes extends this year's expert meeting programme to two editions:
On Thursday, October 6th from 16:00 to 18:00 we will host a session at Stadsschouwburg Utrecht with the focus on "education and outreach". Keynote speaker is Marlene LeRoux, CEO of Artscape Theatre in Cape Town and specialist in audience development.
On Friday, October 7th from 13:30 till 17:30 we host an extended session in Compagnie Theater in Amsterdam, focused on the festival theme "modernity versus tradition". Keynote speaker is Jay Pather, artistic director of Afrovibes and curator of Infecting the City Festival.
Both afternoons are devoted to the exchange of experiences between professionals and future professionals from the (performing) arts field in (Southern) Africa and the Netherlands. The international festival guest will form an important part of the programme alongside Dutch key players. Active involvement of the participants is encouraged. Moderator of these meetings is Quinsy Gario, poet, dramatist and performer.
