Visiting Arts were invited by Arts Council Malta to deliver the three-day training workshop in preparation for next year’s Malta Showcase of Maltese performing arts companies available to tour internationally.
The 7 sessions focused on delivering interactive, practice-based training for building, planning and managing partnership work for companies seeking to extend their performance and programming activities internationally. Key areas included: partnership and collaborative working; strategic planning; international marketing; building legacy; routes to market; and innovative for cultural brands.
