In addition, participants will be offered the chance to get to know different forms of performing arts through theatre festivals (London), performances (London and Prague), and also through an exhibition of performance design and space (Prague), where scenography will be presented as a discipline existing in between the visual and performing arts. Some of the works produced by the participants related to the training program could be included in a specific publication, coordinated and published by TEAM Network, at the end of 2011.
