Audience Academy

In Locarno, the Academies have always been synonymous with young professionals. At Locarno75, however, they will also be synonymous with a more conscious audience. The Audience Academy will allow ten participants to experience three days of behind the scenes. A new special project created together with UBS so that the Prix du Public UBS can also become a workshop for an increasingly aware and involved audience and jury. A 360° experience.
