Minority Co-production: Insights from MEDICI
Co-production implies that there is a majority producer who has initiated the project and one or several minority co-producers who are involved at a later stage. In this chapter, I would like to share some of the insights that have arisen from MEDICI workshops in relation to “minority co-production”, a particular type of official co-production where the financial and creative contribution of one partner is significantly less than another. As the chapter will show, to be a minority co-producer involves certain risks but also numerous advantages.
