Performers Go Online
is the new Erasmus+ project to support and equip performing artists with the essential skills for filmmaking and online self-promotion.
In order to support the cultural sector in Europe with the promotion of lifelong learning activities amidst the global economic crisis brought by the CoVid-19 pandemic, the European project Performers Go Online has just started.
This project pays great attention to the difficulties that the sector has encountered during the last years and it intends to create synergies with the European Union’s response to the CoVid-19 pandemic crisis, or others by fostering social inclusion and the development of crucial skills.
It aims to train culture professionals, specifically performing artists, in the audiovisual technical area regarding the in-home production of artistic contents, something that took place during the first general lockdown in spring 2020 and might happen again.
Furthermore, Performers Go Online addresses the creation of teaching materials tailored for artists on how to promote their work and get in touch with different stakeholders in the European cultural sector. In doing so, Performers Go Online aims to create a transnational cultural network that includes private companies, NGOs, schools and cultural organisations for digitally skilled artists to exploit. At the same time, the project will be able to raise awareness of the difficult situation they have been facing so far.
One of the main goals of Performers Go Online is to develop skills that can considerably help performers during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
