Sunday: Pitch of Plans

11:00-12:30h. During street arts festival Spoffin we organize the Pitch of Plans. A lively and fast 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 30, from 11:00 till 12:30h for an audience of festival organizers from all over Europe.

In a maximum of 3 minutes you can tell, beam, project, let us hear or show what the audiences can expect in 2016 and beyond. After the Pitch we will organize a ‘meet while we eat’ with all artists and professionals. This way you can attract co-producers, residencies, early buyers or 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.

Don’t hesitate to contact Casper de Vries, Spoffin PRO coordinator, if you have any questions.
