I have together with Sofie Marin (Haag) from Sweden made this toolbox for The Development Platform for Performing arts in Denmark with contributions also from Kamma Siguemfeldt and Malco Oliveros. Here are links to the different elements. There are a number of “chapters” with a video intro and some written materiale with links to further resources. For some of the major chapters there are also a workbook where you can work on your own with the material. There is a lot of concrete materiale you can dig into – useful if you want to work international, but also if you just want knowledge and want to grow your workrelations. The material is made so it can also be used by experienced people, so take small steps and use what makes sense to you at the stage you are at. Let me know if you have questions or need supervision in your work.
