"I believe that as many people as possible should take advantage of this great experience. As long as you are free-spirited and ready to improvise your days and explore the world around you in Colombia, you will have a great experience." says Andrew McCafferty, undergraduate music student.

"Doing a Field School in a centre made for artist residencies was perfectly suited for the program course and activities. The facilities were superb to host us and allow us to produce work in the way that best worked for us. For example, I am a night owl and I had no problem staying in the studios until 2am. It was a great learning environment: we were comfortable and at ease in the space while having access to new things to try such as wood and soda firings. Moreover, the destination also hosted artists and workers from elsewhere in the world with whom we exchanged knowledge and techniques," says Clara Micheau, undergraduate studio arts student.

"This experience definitely taught me a lot about how stage design gains its form around the world and how Canada locates itself in this competitive art world. Each workshop, show, exhibition, talks, connections, and experiences lived during the PQ has reaffirmed why I want to do what I choose to do. It was my first time at the festival, but definitely won't be my last one," says Marcio Paulino-Silveira, an undergraduate Theatre student.
