'ARGOS': Actes de Création et Dynamiques de Collaborations Croisées - Arts de la Scène | Creative Europe Cooperation Project

In this context, five experimental activities will take place in five countries (Italy, Belgium, France, Portugal, and Lebanon) so that all involved in the project may establish ways of identifying and creating links among the bodies, the academics, the employees in the field of culture, the wider audience and the students.
