The workshop will be centered around the relationship between the individual and their work, as well as the experiences that arise from this dynamic. Kasia Wolińska will initiate an exchange of experiences, foster collective work, and stimulate a critical dialogue around the elements that form work culture and those that, according to the participants, need improvement, change, and clearer articulation. The workshop is open to women involved in the dance scene: dancers, choreographers, playwrights, producers, organizers, educators, and others interested in critically examining work culture, advocating for improved working conditions, and changing the perspective of the dance environment.
Co-financed by the British Council.
