New York, London and Tokyo (PRWEB) September 19, 2007
The Apogee Foundation (http://www.apogeefoundation.org) has marked the start of its second decade of operations by announcing that it will collaborate with international media & technology group, Aurience Limited (http://www.auriencemedia.com), to expand the scope, scale and penetration of its marquis performing arts programs around the world through film and television, interactive technologies and recorded media productions.
This electronic expansion of Apogee's programs will be implemented across each of the Foundation's three major program divisions: Apogee Awards, Apogee Academy and Apogee Artists, which are respectively designed to identify and support, develop and promote the world's most gifted emerging artists. These media & technology enhancements will be integrated into the ongoing expansion of each of Apogee's program areas, building on the Foundation's historic record of innovation and success in developing and promoting elite performing arts talent by:
- broadening the exposure of Apogee Awards programs and award laureates in sync with the Foundation's ongoing geographical expansion to identify and support the most gifted emerging artists from around the world;
- making more widely accessible the Foundation's Apogee Academy training programs to ensure that emerging artists all over the world can achieve their fullest potential; and
- providing a global platform to showcase the world's most gifted artists through broadcast and recording, reality and documentary media coverage of marquis Apogee Artists performance events around the world.
This spectrum of enhancements across all the Foundation's program areas is designed to interfuse the power of performance art with the penetration of electronic media and in so doing to inspire new awareness of, and to create new markets for, excellence in the performing arts through excellence in the electronic arts.
