The Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL), in partnership with A Million Dots, launches a program to source and strengthen cultural agents from the contemporary art world in Africa.
MACAAL Bootcamp is an intensive 4-day session to assess and challenge oneself and get empowered by professionals and mentors. Each bootcamp participant will be able to think of themselves as part of a professional ecosystem and find their strengths and needs through a series of workshops and masterclasses on core skills.
The Bootcamp will create a “class spirit“ among its 20 participants thanks to a hybrid format made of training, knowledge building, practical workshops on cultural leadership and management.
At the end of the bootcamp, participants will have a roadmap for their future progression and a stronger professional base, as well as a credible professional network to help them draw the outlines of their career: continued training, international mobility, residencies, crossed institutional projects etc.
