Register and Prices

The Improvisation Summer Course strives to insure that our prices do not cancel the possibility to register on the Course Program. We have maintained the same price range since we started in 2009 in consideration to  international currencies and the current financial climate for experimental art practice. The Improvisation summer Course has never asked or used public funding for how this project operates. It is in the spirit for artists to form communities and discover financial autonomy that we enter our 12th year.

Program towards Performances

Three weeks €500 / Two weeks €400 / One week €200

How to register for the Program towards Performances:

Contact me (Katie Duck) by email katie@katieduck.com with a motivation letter (on your email or attached) and your CV (attached). It helps if you have a reference as to how you found out about the Summer Course. Specify if you wish to attend one, two or three weeks and your dates.

You can register for three weeks (weeks 1, 2 and 3), for two weeks (weeks 1 and 2 or weeks 2 and 3), or for one week (weeks 1 or week 2).

You cannot register for this program for days at a time or register for one week in week 3.

Maximum in-take:

We accept 20 people to register for three weeks, 10 people for two weeks and 10 people for one week. You need to register well in advance because places fill up quickly and we do want to work with you!

Invitations and receipts:

I will come back to you with an official invitation from Stichting Magpie (non-profit organisation in the Netherlands) which you can use for 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.

Payment deadline:

You will need to make your payments for this program in advance to our accounts by May 2020.

If you are applying for funding for your payments, please let me know the deadline for when you will know your results.

If you need to delay payments or need to pay cash on arrival, I will hold your place if you can show me your pre-paid travel (flight) tickets and/or proof of your pre-paid housing in Amsterdam.

Payment restrictions

If there is a international over-charge when you transfer your payment we will need for you to give us the difference on arrival to the Summer Course (cash). Unfortunately, if you have made payments into our account and you need to cancel your place on the Summer Course, we can not give you a refund. It is possible for us to reserve your funds in our account for work within the Summer Course 2021.

Please let me know in advance how you plan to transfer your funds into our accounts.
