"What Is Experiment?"

Yulia Kleyman, Fulbright Visiting Scholar alumna of 2012-13, supervised the educational program "What Is Experiment?" as part of the IV Summer Arts Festival "Access Point". The program took place from July 31th to August 2th and offered lectures, director's lab, viewings of plays and a final seminar.
