2019 Netherlands Fellowship participants



We’re pleased to announce the four new participants in the Netherlands Fellowship Programme.
The programme was developed to support three mid-career performing arts professionals working in the Netherlands and one working in Turkey, Morocco, Russia, or Egypt. The Dutch international cultural policy also wants to stimulate the international cultural cooperation and the artistic dialogue between the Netherlands and the four aforementioned countries. It is for that reason that the Dutch fellowship programme is now also open to a fellow from one of these countries.

The brand-new fellows are:

Johan Gijsen, Managing Director, Le Guess Who?
Ira Judkovskaja, Artistic Director, Tryater
Caecilia Thunnissen, Artistic and Managing Director, Oorkaan
Elena Tupyseva, Director, Theatre Ballet Moscow

They will join the ISPA membership and attend the ISPA Congress where they engage in the development and exchange of ideas with leaders from some of the world's most significant arts organizations, increase their industry knowledge and resources through educational opportunities, and share their experience with their communities.

The Netherlands Fellowship Programme is organised by ISPA and made possible by Dutch Performing Arts / Performing Arts Fund NL (Fonds Podiumkunsten).
