The Talent Pact is an initiative from the Clúster Audiovisual de Catalunya (Catalan Audiovisual Cluster) that aims to help emerging talent become more professional and connect with the performing arts and audiovisual fields.
It offers students and recent graduates their first professional experience in the audiovisual field. With tutoring from professionals in the sector, they will carry out audiovisual projects in connection with emerging performing arts projects, resulting in a tool for promoting and highlighting their work.
In this year’s edition 27 students and/or graduates are participating from a total of 7 Catalan universities, who have been distributed into 8 work teams associated with the following projects:

DEBATE: ARE WE HEADING TOWARDS A TRANSMEDIA SCENE?
In the context of the relationship between the performing and audiovisual arts, 2020 is presented as a turning point. With theatres closed as a result of the pandemic, artists and companies have come up with hybrid contexts which have generated uncountable debates about physical presence and live arts. Beyond the mediation of the screen, the presence of the technological component has accelerated enormously and following this evolution – forced or not by the circumstances – there is now talk of “transmedia dramaturgy” and other concepts that try to capture a transformation that is very promising, but at the moment is difficult to define.
