It starts with a conversation... A guide for artists who wish to work collaboratively

'Working internationally and collaboratively is not rocket science. It requires hard work, interest and long hours. It is sometimes infuriating, often puzzling, but also rewarding. We have chosen to work collaboratively and internationally because we are curious and strongly believe larger networks can lead to new possibilities for individual artists and enable development of their artistry. Co-produced, co-funded, co-created productions strengthen the art community by bringing new work opportunities, parameters and models. It widens the horizon of everyone involved. This we say with confidence after 15-20 years in the business. Leading to not only successful and complicated but also failed projects, on our roster'. Read this practical and resourceful guide by ÁSA RICHARDSDÓTTIR and LENE BANG HENNINGSEN.
