Admitted to second year of Bachelor phase.
Developing organizational skills.
Relation to other modules
Related to several band modules.
Are you and your band seeking a band abroad with whom you could perform a double concert not only in Arnhem but also in the city where your partner band comes from?
You will organize everything entailed in these two double concerts yourself:
- Seeking and selecting the partner band;
- Developing all aspects of the concerts’ contents. Everything is possible here: from two sets to each band doing a set each evening or a section where the bands play together. It is up to the band to make the musical choices;
- Seeking a suitable venue where the double concert can be held in the Dutch city and also in the partner band’s home town;
- Where necessary, fund raising;
- The planning and organization of both concerts;
- Publicizing both concerts;
- Realizing the concerts.
Obviously, the partner band will be responsible for part of this work in terms of the concert taking place in its home city. Nonetheless, the concert abroad will also require some level of organization on the part of the Dutch band.
Each band member will work equally on these activities.
So as to be accountable, the band will subsequently draw up a protocol and a report of the entire process that includes an analysis of what went right along with points that could have been improved.
By way of a contribution, each participating ArtEZ student can declare a maximum of €200 travel expenses to ArtEZ. This is based on verifiable petrol costs. All other cases require consultation and must first receive our express approval. But in any case, you must never exceed the maximum amount of €200.
