OPEN INVITATION: Seeking Partnerships!

Gry Worre Hallberg, Sisters Hope Artistic Director (Denmark), leads a comprehensive workshop on Sense Activated Learning from 1:30pm-5pm at SPARK Pre-Conference. This is an opportunity to learn more about Sisters Academy, a participatory experience for schools. Gry will give a detailed presentation on what's involved in a "Sisters Academy Take Over" and do some activities to give participants an idea of what Sense Activated curriculum means. Sisters Hope are looking for partners or producers for a US-based Sisters Academy based event and are interested and available for private meetings for further discussion.

Kindling Seminar on CultureCrew with TeaterCentrum (Denmark),  Friday, January 18, 4:15pm-6pm IPAY is seeking to support a US edition of this program, working with local partners to pilot the model, and serving as a national example for other organizations in North America.  This session is both an in-depth discussion of program logistics, and a pitch to potential programmers who are interested in working with children as young curators. We're looking to connect with interested presenters, schools, and cultural support organizations. TeaterCentrum will be in Philadelphia for the duration of Showcase taking individual meetings.
