Academy School Program


Within our School Program at SPRING Academy, we offer special programs to performing arts schools, both nationally and internationally. These programs are carefully curated to include performance visits and after talks, masterclasses or workshops given by SPRING artists, as well as exchanges between the visiting schools. This way, the students do not only meet the festival makers and artists presenting at SPRING but also connect with each other, the upcoming generation of artists, dramaturgs, scenographers, and researchers. With the SPRING Academy’s School Program, we want to merge academia and artistic expression, foster collaboration and exchange, sharing perspectives. 

Are you a young maker who is not connected to an educational institution but would still like to participate in SPRING Academy? Send us an email and keep your eyes out for our open call program.
