Opera Europa members and Next Stage partners will soon meet at Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf. Together we are determined to lead the way in building more sustainable, inclusive and digitally advanced institutions.
FEDORA has been granted funding by Creative Europe. This allows us to move forward with our joint initiative Next Stage, with the aim to support projects linked to Sustainability, Inclusivity and Digital Transformation in the performing arts, thanks to extra funding raised from private sources.
What initiatives might be successful?
Next Stage is looking for transformative, innovative, collaborative, scalable and feasible projects. Following a first selection process based on the respect of the required criteria, qualified applicants will have the opportunity to present their project during our event in Düsseldorf on 29-30 April.
Jury Members choose Next Stage Grant recipients based on the applications submitted and following the evaluation criteria while taking into consideration the analysis made by the 2021 Opera Management Course participants of Opera Europa.
The announcement of the first Next Stage Grants will be presented during our Prague conference.
The applications for FEDORA Prizes Biennale are also open. The four established privately funded prizes (Opera, Dance, Education and Digital) support cutting-edge artistic projects that promote international collaboration, creativity, social integration and intercultural dialogue, as well as digital innovation on stage.
