The Felix Meritis and the Amsterdam Maastricht Summer University will be
presenting the following courses:

International Production Management for Theatre and Special Events
24 - 27 August, 2003

The success of any performing arts programme or activity can only be ensured
by the quality of its production management. With the growing tendency
towards internationalisation and the necessity for widening the market,
traditional production management skills need to be broadened to include
skills for working outside national borders. The task of production becomes
more complicated as contracts, logistical arrangements, communication,
organisational structuring, and additional areas change to accommodate the
task of accepting foreign partners, artists and performance groups.

about worldwide activities can also help a management team make decisions on
economic and artistic options. This course will discuss all of these topics.
Speakers will include Hugo de Greef, Gerrit Reus, JG Baggerman, Michiel
Buchel, and Marc van Warmendam.

Course leader: Steve Austen, Permanent Fellow, Felix Meritis

parameters for developing productive forms of international cooperation in a

authorities, private foundations, and commercial sponsors. We will survey
