Dan Graham, IATL Trainee Member and Intern, embarked on an extraordinary adventure at the renowned Lincoln Center in New York City. Organised each spring, the center’s Big Umbrella Festival showcases a programme designed with and for neurodiverse audiences, by sharing unique approaches to multi-sensory, interactive, and engaging artistic experiences. This year’s events included a collaboration with ReelAbilities Film Festival, the world’s largest festival dedicated to ground-breaking films by and about people with disabilities.

During his stay, Dan actively participated in various events, performances, creative workshops, and insightful site visits. His mission was to delve deep into the inner workings of the programme, understanding its development and execution, in order to create similar artistic opportunities in his home country, Australia.

We congratulate Dan for this achievement, and we wish him good luck in all his future projects!
