A global initiative launched by the European investor in Bucim and Borov Dol is looking for young talents keen to participate in an international music performance.
January 07, 2022. Radovish, North Macedonia. The initiative is aimed at providing young people with tools to help them find better employment or establish private enterprises in the future. It is run as a part of Solway Group’s partnership with the world renowned Salzburg Festival.
Now approaching its sixth year, @creative.fellowship is thrilled to announce calls for applications to its seven-month long talent showcase, #espyme. Young people from North Macedonia aged 14 -17 with the interests in drawing, photography, filmmaking, fashion design, acrobatics, dancing, acting, playing instruments and singing are invited to fill in the form with a link to their open social network profiles and/or share a 90-second presentation video demonstrating their respective talents. Applications are open at www.creativefellowship.org.
The @creative.fellowship program consists of two selection stages and three participatory modules aimed at improving the participants’ English language skills, introducing them to the basics of Art History, meeting international artists, and learning to collaboratively create artistic projects in cooperation with candidates from other countries.
In January 2022, after the first selection round, fifteen candidates from North Macedonia will be admitted into the final selection round. Two winning finalists — continuously and actively engaged in all the program’s activities, displaying a visible improvement in their academic and creative achievements — will be awarded the opportunity to go to Salzburg in July 2022 and participate in staging a musical performance at the Salzburg Festival’s opera camp. This international artistic collaboration will result in a public performance that will premier within the Festival’s Jung&Jed*er program. The @creative.fellowship finalists are not expected to have previous experience in playing an instrument or singing. During the preparation stage of the program, all participants will create their own artistic portfolios which can be used for advancing their creative careers. Participation in the @creative.fellowship program and two trips to Salzburg for the winning finalists are free of charge.
