Workshop is one of those terms used in such a wide sense that it has lost any meaning. International Festival seems to make it even more complicated to pin point its meaning?
International Festival: Well, generally speaking one could say that workshop can be two things: a consolidation of knowledge already established, or an opportunity to produce knowledge, thus introducing the possibility for something to change. The question is just how this possibility can be articulated, how some form of engagement can be established?
