Talent program for those who make innovative creative visual representations and explore the boundaries of the moving image.
Playgrounds Next is a new tailor sized program intending to further local talent in tight collaboration with the industry, creative and educational field. The program supports local talents by using all means and individual guidance and coaching.
The needs of the talent are leading and will result in tailor-made programs with which we support and co-construct a track record for each of our talents.
We want to boost the creative industry in the region of Noord-Brabant by allowing talents the resources, people and knowledge to kick-start their careers, initiate and produce new projects and create or broaden their (inter)national network.
How it works
Talents for Next are forwarded by the national and regional industry. Besides the obvious freshly graduates, we look for talents in diverse disciplines and with varied backgrounds: film and image makers who have earned their credits and are at a point in their career about to take and investigate new paths or directions.
An independent jury, consisting of representatives from the industry, selects three talents per year. A program, tailored to the specific needs and wishes of each talent, is set up.
For at least one year the three talents commit themselves to their personal talent-program and work together with coaches, professionals and advisors to nourish their needs for knowledge and skills in all kinds of fields and levels.
We believe in sharing. Next stimulates new partnerships and collaborations and makes many of its workshops and masterclasses available to a broad group of talents and professionals.
Please look for all Next activities in our online agenda and join our talents!
