NEXT STAGE GRANTS
In 2021, FEDORA and Opera Europa launched the Next Stage Initiative to trigger change and recovery in the opera and dance sector. This initiative provides financial support and skills development to boost innovation through sustainability, inclusivity, and digital transformation.
The Next Stage Grants will financially support the projects that help create new industry standards and opportunities. The jury will evaluate how innovative, collaborative, transformative, feasible and scalable the project are. Moreover, through the Next Stage Forums, professional development and trainings will be given to the management and artistic teams to boost knowledge sharing and peer-learning in the fields.
In summer 2021, the international management consulting company Kearney, conducted a pro-bono study with 100 opera houses and dance companies all over Europe in order to identify challenges, opportunities and best practices for the future of opera and dance.
