On the heels of Performing the World, October 4-7, and vibrant conversations on performance and social change, the Institute’s 2012-2013 International Class convened in New York City for the first of three residencies. Members of this playful and passionate class of 14 are eager to advance their educational, therapeutic, community and youth development programs and anti-poverty work back home through a study of social therapeutic methodology.
They are (back row l. to r.) Jaime Rodrigo (Colombia), Carrie Sackett (NYC), Ricardo Lana Pinheiro (Brazil), Qazi Abdur Rahman (Bangladesh); (middle row l. to r.) Chris Reyman (Illinois), Sandra Paola Lopez (Illinois/Colombia), Nomsa Mazwai (South Africa), Jorge Burciaga-Montoya (Mexico), Ana DaSilva Iddings (Arizona/Brazil); (front row l. to r.) Bharati Bakshi (India), Ranjana Sengupta (India), Regiane Sbroion de Carvalho (Brazil), Barbara Silverman (New York), and Carol Gorelick (New York).

A ‘global learning’ program begun in 2004, the International Class is open to practitioners and scholars with a broad range of educational and life experiences. It combines residencies in New York City with online seminars, supervision and project development sessions. Applications for the 2013-14 program are being accepted through July.
