“For me experiencing GCLP session in Athens was more than just useful. The week spent with talented tutors and participants gave me a broad understanding of international and local contexts and a possibility for intense peer-to-peer exchange between me and my colleagues. In ordinary life we unfortunately rarely meet with cultural professionals from other parts of the world. But GCLP gives an opportunity to not only meet but also spend the whole week together in order to find possible connections for future cross-cultural collaborations.”
In order to introduce themselves and their organizations, the participants prepared a poster.
