New blog by FestLab participants
On the opening page of the recently created FestivalLAB participants′ blog Milena Kipfmuller writes: "We are a very lucky group of twenty people. In 2011 we were put together by the FestivalLAB program and had the chance to travel to eight different festivals during the year of 2011. Of course, the fact to travel together is great by itself, but the brilliance of this program was to have time to learn and to get to know an amazing amount of things, people, places concepts, ideas….During the program we had the wish to gather some of our thoughts within a publication, so that we could share them among ourselves as well as with other interested people. The pool consists in text about the residency program, projects, about own reflections referring to the cultural scenes in our countries and some collections of precious quotes we collected during the year."
