Barbara Poček is the artistic manager of the Resident program at Glej Theatre (Slovenia). She realized there is little knowledge locally on how to work strategically on internationalization, both from the side of the artists as well as producers. For this reason she wanted to educate herself in a way that would enable her to gain insights and methods as well as to access knowledge networks on how to help both artists and organisations to develop internalization strategies appropriate for their context. Her host was Iva Horvat, the founder of Art Republic in Barcelona (Spain), but the mobility happened through Noorderzon festival (the Netherlands) on the invitation of Mark Yeoman, HKU University in Utrecht on the invitation of Caspar Nieuwenhuis and Station Nord on the invitation of Mark Fischer.
This project enabled her to both participate, develop and assist in delivering a workshop for artists and producers and allowed mentored networking opportunities in Utrecht and Groningen.
The knowhow from the workshops will be very beneficial in developing the Trigger platform and it generated a great amount of insight and ideas on how to work with this locally.
