Meet Alonso Lobato Jimenez, our new FRESH STREET#3 Co-ordinator!

It’s a true pleasure for me to join the team at Fresh Street in time for its third edition. I believe that outdoor art is important as a tool for communities to come together, build understanding and even to exchange ideas and culture among nations, which is something our world sorely needs at this moment. Cultivating international connections through the performing arts is a deep passion of mine and I think Fresh Street is the perfect opportunity for me to work on just that, by delivering a high-quality agenda of activities, discussions, workshops, networking and performances for arts professionals.
