Development, knowledge and method exchange are high priorities for Artlab – both at home and abroad.
Artlab – What & why
Artlab is run by the Danish Musicians Union in cooperation with the Danish Actors Association and offers courses and coaching for professional artists and culturally experienced professionals. Artlab aims at creating jobs through education in arts and in arts & business, based on artists’ unique qualifications and methods.
Artlab develops study labs, training programmes and projects aimed at strengthening artist’s individual possibilities to take action, cooperate and develop new platforms for their art in a changing society – which sees the numbers of full time jobs for artists rapidly decreasing, an unfortunate development which runs contrary to the public interest and the requirements of the creative industries.
Artlab focuses on research, development and on achieving real results, providing a dynamic bridge between education and working life, arts and business, theory and action in an on-going dialogue with artists, organisations, cultural institutions, companies, politicians, urban communities, city councils and governments – nationally and internationally.
