A 6 month long L.E.A.P.

The last L.E.A.P. programme addition of 2019 is Augustina Vasile. She will be assisting the team in the following 6 months (until May 2020) with communication and event planning activities while also learning new skills in managing an artists’ network and advocating for street arts and circus.
