EAVE 2020 Selection
We are delighted to close the year announcing the 55 producers from 39 countries that will be part of the EAVE Producers Workshop 2020 (see the complete list below) - selected out of an all time record number of 249 applications from 57 countries.
The 2020 group represents a highly talented and diverse group of professionals – not only in terms of nationality, geographic spread, ethnicity, age, and gender, but also with regards to types of projects, business set-up, experience, and background.
We are very much looking forward to the 2020 workshop together!
We are particularly grateful for the generous support of our 2020 scholarship partners:
