Artist exchange is about the exchange of knowledge, skill and experience between HANDS and another performing arts group or individual artist even. We have sent team members to Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, LA and Australia. The objective is to observe and learn what other established artists or groups do and to use and share that information when they are done. Vice versa, if you are interested in learning what and how we do what we do you are welcome to contact us and we can talk! Listed are some events or festivals our members have been to, for an exchange of artistry.
