Coffee with the curators -event, organized by the New Performance Turku Festival, invites local artists, producers, curators and organizers to discuss with festival’s international guest curators. Participants are Antoine Pickels, curator of SIGNAL festival (Brussels, Belgium), one of Japan’s most preminent curators and artists Seiji Shimoda (NIPAF, Japan), Alexander del Re from Perfolink (Santiago, Chile) and New Performance Turku Festival’s own curators and co-artistic directors Leena Kela and Christopher Hewitt.
In the discussion each curator will present their festival, its curatorial practices, policies and focus points. The purpose of the discussion is to exchange and distribute information on events and organizations in performance and live art scene, and open up discussion possibilities to local makers with international professionals.
We are also offering personal meetings with the curators, for example to presenting your own artistic work. Inquiries on personal meetings at firstname.lastname@example.org
