The Get Close to Opera project, funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme and developed by a consortium of 7 European partners in association with Fondazione Matera-Basilicata 2019, is organising a training week which will take place from February 25th to March 1st in Matera, Italy, site of the European Capital of Culture 2019.
The training is for professionals in the cultural sector (*), especially those who plan or lead projects centred in ARTS and OPERA education.
