Theatre and Dance
Working in theatre is one of the most beautiful professions. Where the adrenaline is constantly flowing through your body as soon as you enter the stage, and you can realize your dream. But what many people do not realize is that this dream comes at a high price. It is not just that one moment on stage. It is days and days of preparation, daily routines, long working days and deep concerns about the future: What will life be like in 10 years? How am I going to pay for that? The theatre and dance community is committed to all those active on the stage.
Arts education is aimed at introducing people both actively and passively to the world of the arts and allowing them to participate in cultural life. Our arts education community focuses on optimizing this beautiful practice. As a teacher you put your heart into transferring knowledge and experience, or you support teachers and ensure that they can perform their task as well as possible. Currently more and more teachers who are working in art education are starting their own business. A fantastic development! But it also entails many responsibilities.
The visual community is committed to all visual artist whom often works alone. Working solo is where the artist’s happiness and freedom lie. You don’t need a whole team to help to produce your work. You can do this yourself and you know your worth. However, as your clientele expands, your practice will become more complex and uncertain, and the administrative burdens of collecting, processing, registering etc. will increase.

All exceptional professions that we are very proud of.
