Despina is selected to participate in British Council’s Exchange Programme


A collaboration project between Despina and The Fruitmarket Gallery (located in Edinburgh, UK) was selected to participate in British Council‘s Exchange Programme.

This programme has been designed by the British Council to build up connections between museums, cultural institutions and creative universities in Brazil and the UK. It encourages collaboration through the exchange of knowledge and best practice for the development of the cultural sector by providing resources for institutions to foster the capacity of staff and increase cross-cultural understanding, resulting in partnerships.

The British Council looked for candidates interested in the mutual exchange of professionals from institutions in Brazil and in the United Kingdom, allowing those selected to develop a residence with the partner institution or university for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of one month. More than twelve collaborative projects were contemplated; find out more about the other organizations selected.
