Formation à la sensibilisation artistique

2021 PUBLIC AWARENESS TRAINING SESSION

June 9 2021 to June 13 2021
A training programme to raise public awareness, open to musicians from all walks of life

For 10 years, the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra offers a training programme to raise public awareness of the arts which has given young artists the opportunity to put their musical talents into practice and to develop their professional skills outside of the concert hall, and thus reach out directly to audiences. Each session is made up of roughly fifteen instrumentalists, singers and creators from a variety of countries, and provides a space for reflection—so essential today—on the role and place of the artist in society.

The programme has been designed and is led by MARK WITHERS, a clarinetist and the coordinator of participatory educational projects. Other artists from various disciplines are regularly invited, according to the themes developed in the sessions.

This public awareness training session aims to provide participants with career development tools for designing and implementing creative projects that will raise public awareness. It helps individuals develop their creativity by drawing inspiration from their own cultural heritage and encourage intercultural initiatives.

In every session, participating artists will encounter diverse audiences far from the world of the performing arts, in order to apply their newly acquired skills directly in the field. These encounters, developed by Mark Withers, are part of outreach programs organized by Passerelles*, an educational and socio-artistic department of the Festival d’Aix.

* Passerelles leads awareness-raising events, as well as projects with nearly 5,000 participants, thanks to relationships forged with over two hundred schools, universities, associations and social institutions.
