Young Festival Managers Workshop with Fafa Utami
Festival Management Workshop report, December 3, 2011 by Tinton Prianggoro
In early December 2011, I attended a workshop on Young Festival Managers pioneered by JakArt, where the keyspeaker from this workshop is Fawarti Gendra Nata Utami or more commonly known as Fafa Utami from Solo, Central Java.
The workshop content is divided into three segments, namely the activities of Atelier Young Manager Festival in Singapore, some festivals in Solo which was organized the keyspeaker and a quite interactive panel discussion in which all participants and speakers share about each other’s experiences regarding festival management.
The workshop lasts from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Aster Room, Adi Puri Building, 2nd Floor, Wisma Subud, Jalan Fatmawati No. 52, South Jakarta. It began with introduction from the participants who came from Jakarta, Padang, Malang, Palu and Solo.
This workshop is significant for us because we received a lot of information about festival, festival networking and how to realize the dream of a festival as well as a variety of obstacles behind the fanfare of a festival including fundraising.
Our hope as workshop participants is that this activity will be continued to the next stage, including speakers from the world of business, promotion to marketing communication, so that art festivals can continue to happen along with the required financial, managerial and executive support.
