With lectures and conversations, we want to address the demanding aspects of being a dance artist:

• What situations do I find mentally demanding in my work as an artist?
• What does a mentally demanding day look like and how do I tackle it?
• How do I lead myself in recovery and decline?
• How do I manage to work on my own?
• What drives me in my work as an artist?

The seminar is held by Agnes Bohne, psychologist and performing artist, and Donatella De Paoli, Ass. Prof. BI Norwegian Business School.

In 2022, TILT Grow is presented for the fifth time and aims to promote dance achievement, as well as make dance artists more viable in an ever-changing field. For 2022, a number of open seminars are held for all types of (dance) artists, where important topics are highlighted and current issues are put on the agenda.
