Charlotte Bendiks

15/11/2019

Growing up in Tromsø, the techno capital of Norway, it is not strange that Charlotte Bendiks got interested in electronic music at a young age. She started DJing in her early twenties, developing into a highly respected and sought-out artist over the years. Her DJ sets focus on sexy dance and body music. Although her main genre is classic house, her sets are inspired and influenced by music ranging from disco to African groove and Latin beats. She is widely known for creating euphoric, hot and sweaty dance floors. Doing live vocals and percussion as well as integrating other musicians has become somewhat of a trademark for this girl – transforming the whole performance more into a happening instead of just a simple DJ set. From 2007 to 2009 she organized numerous underground house parties called “Moist”. Her solo release, the Afterhours EP came out on Mental Overdrive’s LOVE OD Communications label in January 2013, followed by the second Aurora EP a year later. When she is not playing, working or crate digging, her favourite activity is chilling naked in a jacuzzi with a glass of Möet in each hand.

Workshop in the field of literary publishing: Editor in publishing today

04/11/2019

Kolarac Foundation, Friday 8th November at 10 o’clock

The programme of the workshop is designed so it answers the question: which skills and knowledge are required for an editor of a publishing house today? Before, an editor was responsible only for the creative process of selecting books, creating the publishing concept, working on an authored text or a translation. However, today, due to the lack of funds, the profession of an editor covers several positions, and also the array of their interests and knowledge has to be significantly wider. Therefore, it is necessary to redefine the notion of an editor in publishing today.

The workshop familiarises participants with the process of perfecting oneself on several levels:

1) The level of general knowledge: flawless familiarity with the matter which is editor’s narrower specialty (e.g. world, domestic literature, language, psychology, philosophy), and general education (pop culture, politics, history…).

2) The level of specific skills: basic control over skills editor’s expert associates consider their specialist profession (grammar and spelling; text formatting and design; foreign languages; social networks and marketing; familiarity with and implementation of new business models; communication and negotiation with authors and agents.

3) Skills of applying for domestic and international grants: an editor must know how to design the concept of the project they want to offer to foreign partners, to justify and present it well, and also in the end to put it into action in accordance with the project: precisely, in a timely manner and with high quality.

In the first part of the workshop leaders will go through all three listed levels which would offer workshop participants an insight and a solid basis in further education for holding the position of an editor in a publishing house, but also a project manager for foreign grants.

Who is it for?

The workshop is intended for cultural professionals working in the field of literary publishing, and especially those who plan to initiate or have recently established a publishing house. Moreover, organisations dealing with publishing activities, like universities and libraries, which were not active in this field can also apply.
What kind of knowledge and skills will participants acquire?

Within the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to get familiar with the basics of the editing process in literary publishing; basics of communication with foreign agents; basics of applying for foreign and domestic grants.

How to apply to participate?

You can apply to participate by sending an application to the email address: kreativnaevropa.izdavaci@gmail.com, until Friday 25th October 2019. The application should contain:

– first and last name of the applicant;

– occupation and name of the organisation they represent;

Who will lead the workshop?
