DAS Creative Producing - Entrepreneurship in the Arts is a new two-year, part-time, interdisciplinary master programme for creative producers whose work addresses inequalities and imagines better futures.
The world is changing rapidly, and so is art. This programme will educate creative producers who want to realise radical projects to make the world more equal, just and free.
Please note: Language of instruction is Dutch and English. Participants need to be able to speak and read both. Go to the Dutch version of this website for more info.
Radical and urgent
The term creative producer originated in the UK and the US. It is the professional moving in between artists, funders and the people at large. With a clear vision of what happens in the world in general and in the arts in particular, the creative producer connects everyone in an inclusive and sustainable way.
Resistance and change
Resistance and change often take place in art," author Ursula K. Le Guin once said. Today, resistance and change are as necessary as ever before. Making art is getting more and more complex. We need new ways of producing with which we engage with multiple disciplines and participants — whether artist, visitor or funder — in a sustainable manner.
Make a difference!
This programme is for professionals in the cultural sector. They are active as producing professional in theatre, film, music, visual arts, video games or dance. They are mindful of the present systems and structures in place in the arts, politics and beyond, and reflect on them critically, constructively and productively.
The main language of this programme is Dutch. Once a month you will be present at the DAS Graduate School for 5 consecutive days. Alongside your studies you will work in the arts. In this master programme you will engage with theory, the world, the arts and your fellow students. You will also have agency over the programme.
DAS Graduate School
DAS Graduate School was established in 2016 by the Academy of Theatre and Dance in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Theatre, DAS Choreography and DAS Research have joined forces to invest in the further development of education and research. Currently a third master, DAS Creative Producing, is in development.
The school is based in a recently renovated building with a broad range of facilities, and the heart of the building functions as an open and welcoming locale for gatherings and meetings between the arts, science, education and society.
