RENEW Teacher training

RENEW Teacher training will bring together teachers and faculty from conservatoires all over Europe. They will explore the outcomes of the Renew student boot-camps so far and will be informed about the status quo of teaching entrepreneurship in higher arts education worldwide. In an explorative way, the training will engage all participants to design new drafts for teaching programs that can be applied in various contexts.

The program for the Teacher Training is conceived in a way that allows participants to keep track of the student boot-camp that is taking place parallel at the same location. It starts together with the student boot-camp on Monday 24 September and will end at lunchtime Friday 28 September. This timing allows the outcomes of the Teacher Training to feed the Renew Conference that will start at Friday 28 in the afternoon to be continued on Saturday 29thof September.

RENEW Final Conference 

If entrepreneurs can become presidents, entrepreneurial artists should reach for higher goals. Yet learning to become an entrepreneur is a relatively new subject in arts education. How to implement teaching entrepreneurship in higher arts education?

The RENEW project, developed by six partner institutions*, has addressed exactly this question over the last two years. Is it possible to match the autonomy of the artist with the drive to create opportunities to perform? Or is the soldier in Stravinsky’s tale that exchanges his violin for knowledge that will help him understand his economic future selling his soul to the devil? RENEW is ready to share its findings with the larger community of conservatoires and other arts education institutions during a conference in The Netherlands hosted by the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague on 28 and 29 September 2018.
