Internationalization in Practice - Module 2
With: Wolfgang Hoffmann
Sequence of the MIT+ programme online workshop, the second module aims to reflect on how important is solidarity and the culture of sharing. Based on the elaboration of pitch sessions, for a real presenter, participants should identify the goals and outline strategies for their own work and set the position they want to occupy in the global stage. All participants should leave this workshop with a clear set of achievable goals for the coming year and a strategy to do so.
This workshop is an action of MITbr: MITbr Platform Brazil, axis of internationalisation of Brazilian performing arts of MITsp – São Paulo International Theatre Festival, presented by Olhares Cultural Institute and supported by Goethe-Institut São Paulo.
