31 October – 1 November 2008, Moscow, Russia. Application deadline: 15 May 2008
The European Festival Research Project (EFRP) invites researchers to submit proposals for inclusion in its 2008 research workshop - Festivals of Theater for Children and Youth, which will be hosted in Moscow within the framework of Big Break Festival 2008.
The European Festival Research Project (EFRP) is an international, interdisciplinary consortium, focused on the dynamics of artistic festivals today and seeking to understand the current explosion of festivals and its implications and perspectives.
EFRP is working to develop a critical mass of research papers, studies, publications and debates and through these to articulate tentative conclusions, trends, forecasts and recommendations for festival operators, public authorities as subsidy givers and potential sponsors.
Periodically EFRP holds intensive research workshops on specific topics where comparative and longitudinal research is presented and specific issues and topics are discussed. All research outcomes are being made accessible in a public depository at the web site of the European Festival Association.
Interested researchers should submit a 100-150 word summary of their presentation to Dr. Dragan Klaic (Leiden University, Holland), Chair of the EFRP at email@example.com by 15 May for the Moscow workshop.
