Through an open call for emerging professionals working in the field of culture and contemporary art, KONTEJNER invited Croatian and international participants to be a part of the new educative programme of the EU project Future DiverCities.

The topic of the education is planning and realization (production) of large scale cultural events, and the programme in its 10 days of duration includes many different levels - from project management to technical production and curatorial work, and budgeting and marketing. The participants have worked on their theoretical and practical knowledge within the real project framework - during the making of our festival Extravagant Love which took place in September and October 2019 in Zagreb. Part of the participants was selected in collaboration with our partners Second Nature (France) and Liepaja City Council (Latvia). The participants of this project are Ilze Putnina (LV), Kristina Jakuš (HR), Marina Pavić (HR), Alice Santiago (FR) and Teuta Gatolin (HR). Some of the lecturers and workshop moderators are Jadrana Ćurković (200C and KONTEJNER, HR), Stahl Stenslie (curator; NO), Anna Dumitriu (artist, UK), Luja Šimunović and Klara Petrović (curators, KONTEJNER); Sunčica Ostoić (theoretician, KONTEJNER), artists of the M28 collective (Sara Salamon, Hrvoje Spudić, Tin Dožić, Andro Giunio, Sven Sorić, Vanda Kreutz), Ena Hodžić (director of KONTEJNER).
