Nowy Teatr is announcing an open-call for a second edition of Summer Camp, a two-week International Interdisciplinary Academy which aims to attract  artists and encourage them to share their knowledge. The summer camp will be a place for the exchange of ideas and experiences, a dedicated space to spend time together, an opportunity for artists and participants to mingle, network, enrich, and support one another. The programme will be a balanced mixture of practice, learning, and discovery.

Participants of the Academy, supported by the artists leading the workshops, will practice, explore the city, discuss, conduct research, and learn from each other.

The Academy is designed for art professionals from all over the world. Participants can sign up for workshops via the open call. There will be approximately 12 participants in each workshop. There are always 3 workshops in the same time and participants facultatively choose in which workshops they want to participate. Attendance is required for the entire workshop. The workshops will be held in English, so the applicants should be able to communicate fluently.
