CheersCamp in Bochum (2017)

Workshop – Marathon by students for students

Saturday, 21st of january 2017, 11 am – 8 pm in Tor5 Bochum

How do I tell the difference between a VGA and an HDMI cable? And how does the semiotic perspective on actors differ from the phenomenological one? How do I write a stringent proposal and how do I get rid of the backache on it that writing gave me? The different artistic training programs in NRW are characterized by the fact that students not only learn very specific skills and methods at each university, but also always create their own individual knowledge profiles and focal points of work through their interests and contacts – with an individual artistic handwriting, checked out or quite crafty. Cheers for Fears made use of this individual expertise and organised an active and joyful workshop camp by students for students followed by a party at Tor5, the premises of Szenische Forschung Bochum.

It was possible to simply participate or additionally give a one-hour workshop. The day was designed in such a way that you could attend the other panels before or after your own workshop. The workshops should represent a topic close to the students’ hearts- and be limited to a specific aspect of their skills.

Workshop topics came from areas such as:

  • Body and movement, voice and choir
  • artistic strategies
  • Project concepts, funding, production management
  • Art Theory
  • Video, photography, light, sound etc.
  • Layout, design, text and image processing programms
