“Participating in the GCLP was unlike anything I could have anticipated. The training, connections, conversation, and network were invaluable. It was inspirational and galvanizing to see such solidarity from people across the globe coming together to ask similar questions, troubleshoot similar problems, and share similar desires to work toward a future where the arts and culture are birthright of everyone.”
In order to introduce themselves and their organisations, the participants prepared a poster presenting 4 elements – Me, My organisation, My Project and My Dream.
