FEDORA Platform Communications Coordinator

Emploi culturel : description de l’entreprise et de ses activités

FEDORA – The European Circle of Philanthropists of Opera and Ballet is a privately funded non-profit organization, committed to supporting and contributing to the future of opera and ballet. The association was founded in 2014 in Paris, under the presidency of Mr Jérôme-François Zieseniss, as a tribute to Rolf Liebermann. FEDORA’s main goal is to encourage philanthropy in the fields of opera and ballet generally, and in furtherance of that aim, it raises funds to support the creation of new opera and ballet co-productions through the privately funded FEDORA – Van Cleef & Arpels Prize for Ballet and the FEDORA – GENERALI Prize for Opera that encourage artistic co-operation between opera houses, ballet companies, festivals and artists. FEDORA offers its members special access to opera houses and festivals in Europe and thereby FEDORA builds a network of philanthropists who share the same values and support opera and ballet on a European level. In 2017 FEDORA received the “Philanthropy Award” at the International Opera Awards.

FEDORA will be setting up a European Platform that will act as a European-wide hub promoting innovative and hybrid opera and ballet co-productions, created by emerging artists from diverse disciplines, appealing to a younger audience. This European initiative will lead the way in advocating new funding models for the performing arts, by creating a sustainable eco-system between the cultural and economic sector and by setting up the structural, social, and economic conditions necessary to guarantee the future of the cultural heritage of opera and ballet in Europe
