Summer Summit Professional Musicians
July 2, 2023 - July 8, 2023
An examination of the possibilities and conditions, whether and how to organize an annual inspiration week for international professional cultural workers from different arts fields. A week where we can develop new ideas around art education, talent development and cultural exchange with colleagues in a beautiful environment.
Helena Rüegg and Rob Bangert have invited 15 professional musicians and artists to be their guests in the summer of 2023, from July 2 to 8, in Roncaccio, near the village of Aranno in Ticino. In this remote, beautiful and inspiring setting, we want to explore with some other colleagues how to make our dream come true: to organize an annual gathering of international professional musicians, dancers, writers, visual artists and art teachers.
For professional artists, there are often few opportunities to get to know colleagues from other countries. Many seminars and other meetings of this type are offered during the summer months. But they are almost always aimed only at amateurs. Therefore, we believe it is important for professionals to be able to meet in a relaxed atmosphere as well.
Our inspiration week is all about sharing our expertise and experiences. To stimulate such discussions, we would be pleased if each participant provides insight into his/her field and talks about the structures and work opportunities in his/her home country or residence.
Colleagues from Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands will travel to the Roncaccio. A truly international group!
Talking about our respective professions is already very inspiring! But of course, practical performance on the spot is most welcome: singing, making music, dancing, acting – together or in small groups is always possible, but not necessary! Because the week should be as relaxed as possible.
Our actual goal is to organize an annual exchange in the summer starting in 2024, cost-effective and with a small participation fee. The insights gathered during this inspiration week in early July 2023 will flow into a project application to European partners for 2024 and subsequent years .
