The tenth edition of the festival Improspections brings a rear view look – a memory of the beginnings of this initiative, a reunion of the associates who participated in its development, looking back at the past experience; however, this edition also offers a look ahead – towards new collaborations, partnerships and topics, towards its new decade.
