Routes to Employment
Also available in: English | Italian

Performing and visual artists who want to find their places as professionals in the cultural sector need hands-on training provided by non-formal education. They need tools and skills enabling them to face complexity, not only intercultural and interdisciplinary open-mindedness but cross-disciplinary competences, and awareness of the contemporary artists’ role within community based projects and socially engaged artistic practices.

Routes to Employment. Arts and Culture as an enabler for growth is aimed at increasing the employability and life skills of young artists and creative workers, trained at formal and informal educational institutions, by accompanying them in the critical passage from education to profession. The project offers possible answers to the gaps in arts education and in the startup of artistic professions, by combining the open, flexible, holistic approach of the ROOTS & ROUTES creative education methodologies, with the training and advising system for the professionalisation of young artists and cultural workers developed by SMartBe. This will lead to developing and delivering on one hand:
• a transnational unified curriculum containing self-entrepreneurial training materials and methods, that includes personalised guidance, counselling and follow-up
• easy to handle guidance sheets where raw legal and administrative information is processed, to help artists and creative workers at the start of their professional path to face the complex nature of cultural work; this standard manual will consist of information material freely accessible online and will be adapted to national requirements.

In the pilot training activities implemented nationally, the approach to the technical, specialised skills will be embedded in a flexible non-formal setting aimed at
• enhancing the understanding of contemporary artistic culture as a field of organic and interconnected disciplines, skills, sensitivity
• investigating the relationship between contemporary arts and public sphere, and the artists’ role within community based projects and socially engaged artistic practices
• stimulating critical thinking and arousing awareness on personal responsibility towards oneself and the others when defining and pursuing one’s objectives.

In the second project year, three short term transnational joint training events will be organised for staff (managers and trainers) of all partner organisations, to exchange and test methods and practices in different contexts and with the involvement of selected professionals of the creative work sector. The confrontation, exchange and harmonisation of the various national pilot training experiences, as well as the thematic focus of the three train the trainers sessions - e-skills (networking and social media), transnational mobility awareness, contemporary arts and public sphere - will help developing a final trans-national unified curriculum based on learning outcomes.

Two sets of multiplier events will be organised in all partner countries. In the first project year they will be aimed at sharing and discussing the educational methodologies with local stakeholders and at collecting insights and recommendations for the trans-national unified curriculum; at the end of the project period, they will be aimed at disseminating in a creative way to a broader public the project’s results and achievements: according to the spirit of the partnership, methodological work and artistic expression will come together in site-specific public restitutions in form of installations, scenic talks, performances.

15 Participants from the disciplines music, dance and media attended several workshops of various guest lecturers. Topics like Leadership, coaching sessions, financial issues, negotiating, Shark Tank pitch (present your product for a jury), entrepreneurial skills were discussed.

During the training we focus on the business side (eg. Quotations, contracts, copyrights, finance). But also the artistic development (what is your dream and long-term plan, presenting yourself as an artist, how do you develop an artistic concept) and PR & Marketing (how to reach your target group, how do you promote yourself, network building) are discussed.

Here below a brief summary of a couple workshops:

The network workshop was given by’ Projectbureau 014’, Michel Jansen. The first round of the workshop was focused on three personal aspect as who are you, what are you doing and why are you doing this? The question asked were “who or what do you need? Round 2 was about giving feedback, but also making connection within the group. If you tell the group what you need, maybe there's someone who can help you.

Glow in the Dark – masterclass dj’s
The dj-formation consists of Albert and Kevin, graduated from Albeda Musician/Producer training. Nowadays they are flying all over the world like Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong and work with big names such as David Guetta. The boys talked about their experiences; shown their movies and let the participants hear their music. They are open for cooperation and gave their email address to the participants.

Firestarter
The program Firestarter was a collaboration with Renee Tijsselaar of the HipHopHuis. Entrepreneurs of the HipHopHuis came together with the participants of Routes to Employment. The participants were given a tour by a programmer in the New Luxor Theatre. The guest lecturers were given by photographer Stacii Samidin, stand-up comedian Jandino, Aruna one of the founders of Hiphophuis , rapper Blaxtar and many more.

Sharktank pitch
During the second week of the training the participants were preparing their Sharktank pitch. This was one of the tasks the participants received on the first day of the training. All the workshops, guest lecturers can be used as inspiration to complete the presentation. Malumba (actor, coach, theatre) was invited to give the participants feedback as preparation for their pitch. Malumba gave the participants a lot practical advice; make sure your pitch has a beginning, middle and an end. Make the product a part of yourself. If you are a dancer then the public would like to you see as a dancer. You should also appear as a dancer, if you want the audience to really believe it. If you're a photographer, you present in pictures.
