I will come back to you with an official invitation from Stichting Magpie (non-profit organisation in the Netherlands) which you can use to pursue funding and/or visa purposes. Once payments are made into our accounts you will receive a receipt from Stichting Magpie (attached) on your email. If you need a signature on your receipt, please bring it with you to the workshop and I can sign it for you.

If you are applying for funding for your payments, please let me know the deadline for when you will know your funding results. If you need to delay payments or need to pay cash on arrival, please let me know.

If you pre register with me for a workshop, I will hold your place on a list. If you are a Musician please let me know what instrument you play or if you are a singer/vocal artist.

The summer course does not provide housing as part of our organisation. We do provide a limited support system for housing collecting sublets in Amsterdam from people who are leaving their flats or rooms for the summer. There is a guest room in the OT301 space that can be rented. It contains four beds. You can come to me by email for details about these rooms in the OT301 building. I will begin to send to you by email the lists of sublets we find in Amsterdam by May-June 2019. There are never enough sublets for all of the participants of the summer course. If you can independently find a housing option in Amsterdam we suggest you pursue this.
Once you have registered and paid for your place in the program towards Performances, please read the paper below (link). The OT301 is a public building with several public spaces and studios. We ask that you read the list of rules so we do disturb the residence in the building.
