Growing up as a dancer, the difficulties that institutions faced to maintain artistic integrity while being accessible to the public led me to a career in the arts; not as an artist, but as a someone that knows how to properly manage an organization. Wanting this career path led me to find the MAMA program; an immersive experience that gave me the tools to understand the day-to-day management of a cultural institution: financially, organizationally, and communicationally.
The issues which I once faced found solutions during the program, while others developed when discussing real life cases with professors and in meetings with numerous Italian cultural institutions.
Sharing this experience with a group of diverse people who enriched my background and managerial skills, definitely made MAMA a well-rounded program designed to make us innovate within the cultural sector.
