“It was an amazing and fulfilling opportunity that I consider myself very lucky and privileged to have had, but I was also a hard and tireless worker which made the results even better. The program is an excellent one and I have and continue to encourage my friends to take up on the opportunity that IA&A offers.”
~ Gemma Lumley from Australia, intern at Chelsea Art Museum, New York, NY
“I feel that I did achieve my final goal through this training program. I was able to acquire important knowledge about the way that photojournalists work in the U.S.”
~ Lucas Cannistraci from Argentina, trainee at Palm Beach Post, West Palm Beach, FL
“It was great working with professionals in the field of arts and learning from them. I learned to work independently and became more flexible and open.”
~ Stephanie, trainee at the Washington National Opera, Washington, DC
“This training has been a golden opportunity, I’ve got to learn a lot of skills, and programs that I did not know about, that would definitely help my institution in Mexico. Not only this, but the social networking, has been great, the people that I have come to know are now, not only work colleagues, but friends as well.”
~ Denisse Flores Somarriba from Mexico, trainee at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington D.C.
