Congratulations to CMCI student Josephine Pachta-Reyhofen, who has won a paid internship at London’s Royal Opera House following her success in the latest King’s Cultural Challenge.
This year’s challenge was to design an innovative cultural project or programme to explore how the arts and culture can drive social change in “a divisive social and political climate.”
Josephine (pictured) proposed a performance festival called “Sign Stages” in which deaf and hearing artists work together to raise awareness for deaf people both on stage and in the audience. Originally from Vienna, Josephine took a BA and MA in Theatre Studies at LMU Munich and is now pursuing another MA in Cultural and Creative Industries with us here at King’s. Her internship begins in October 2017.
