At the Atlas Academy it is possible to attend seminars, (informal) concerts, workshops and to develop research on intercultural topics (articles, interviews, etc.)
All selected participants can attend the activities offered in the Atlas Academy as listeners.
- composers and musicians can apply to develop a project during the academy (a sketch, experiment or improvisation), leading rehearsal sessions with the soloists/tutors and other participating musicians.
- musicians of all instruments can apply to participate playing.
Applicants' instruments will be available for composers to write for, in addition to the fixed setup of invited soloists/tutors. In case the instrument is demanded by a project, active musicians can be selected to play and collaborate in the rehearsal sessions.
Both active and auditor participants are subject to selection.
The deadline for active applications is May 1. Proposals will be evaluated and the selected candidates will be contacted and assisted to develop further their plans. On July 1 the active participants are expected to deliver a fully detailed project. Composers might be offered pre-fixed instrumentations to work with. Musicians will join composers' projects according to the demand for their instruments.
Application for auditor participant is open until the beginning of the Academy.
