January: Featured story

“IT’S ALL ABOUT MEETING COLLEAGUES”

In January WILDTOPIA went on a research trip to New York – attending the performing arts fair APAP and the festivals Under the Radar, American Realness and Prototype. The purpose was to find out how to navigate the New York festival circuit in January for independent producers and selfproducing artists.

“It’s all about meeting colleagues,” APAPs director Mario Garcia Durham gently reminds us when talking about America’s biggest Artmarket APAP.  Festival producer at PROTOTYPE Festival, Melanie Milton advices: “Be sure to see shows across all the genres at the festivals in New York in January. It’s a unique chance to get a broad experience.” Another tip is “don’t rely on the subway going from one venue to another. Be ready to take a cab.”

We will publish articles about this in February 2019 – in collaboration with The Development Platform for Performing Arts and on WILDTOPIAs inspirational blog.

We believe in collaborations where everybody gets something out of it – strategically and output-wise.
