Wednesday, January 7, 2015
10AM-5:30PM
at the Segal Center
the Graduate Center, CUNY at 365 Fifth Ave., at 34th Street.


The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center has created, in collaboration with the European cultural mobility information network On the Move and the U.S.-based grass-roots international network Theatre Without Borders, a free and user-friendly guide to funding for international exchange for artists traveling from and to the USA builds upon On the Move's existing co-produced guides for artists and cultural professionals in Europe, Asia, and Arab countries (www.on-the-move.org/funding). The Guide will be launched at the Symposium.
