This virtual program is a way to re-connect within the art community, to provoke the creative exchange between international artists and to form another dimension of social interaction. The focus is on connecting artists and building new networks between them, through dialogue and experimentation.
The program gives the opportunity to dedicate creative time, to receive support and feedback from the WOC team, teachers and artists and find motivation to continue current projects or start a new one.
