Every year, Spoffin invites around 50 programmers of fellow festivals to visit the Amersfoort festival. For accredited professionals from the Netherlands and abroad, Spoffin organises a series of special meetings in addition to the festival programme. Spoffin has a team of multilingual festival guides to help the pro's during their stay. All pro's (both programmers and artists) can meet while they eat.
‘The Nordic bubble: does it exist? How to escape from it?’. Many outdoor artists from the Nordic countries mainly perform in their own periphery of Europe, some perform all over the continent and even beyond. Why is this the case? Is there something like a Nordic bubble? And if so, is that a bad thing? How is it possible to escape? Is it true that Nordic artists are too expensive for the rest of Europe? Are there any other bubbles? Outdoor artists, programmers and representatives of cultural funding bodies from all over Europe are invited to join this debate, share their best practices and look for solutions.
During Spoffin we organise the Pitch of Plans. A lively and speedy 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 26, for an audience of festival organisers from all over Europe.
In a maximum of 3 minutes artists can tell, beam, project, let us hear or show what the audiences can expect in 2019 and beyond. After the pitch we will organise a ‘meet while we eat’ with all artists and professionals. In this way we hope to create opportunities for creation, co-production, residencies, early buys or quick 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!
Pitchers; Please register and choose 'Pitcher' in the checkbox 'I am...'
We will decide who can come and pitch by August 1.
