After lots of rewrites Pia and I have come to this paragraph:
The internationalists (working title)
We are a community of international theatre makers looking to exchange theatrical currencies on a global stage.
Through broadening the exposure of both individually and collaboratively initiated work, we invite our audiences to enter an intercultural dialogue, expand personal and political perception and impact our creative processes. Building a network of venues under one alliance, we can offer one's theatre to another's community. By exploring means of linking artists, audiences and spaces, we want to ensure that an array of international work is readily accessible to audiences worldwide.
We have send this to Anne, since we need to get the ball rolling, but I made it clear this is a a work-in-progress. DON'T panic if you have further suggestions - things are flexible.
What we need to do is use this paragraph - or versions of this mission to attack HOME RESOURCES - find as much information as possible about international organisations/festivals/funding/network - anyone who can give us some information or is interested in helping us with our mission. GOOD LUCK! let the research begin!
