Maïa Sert

With an ‘intercultural’ soul, Maïa Sert is a specialist in cultural projects involving international co-operation. Her cursus in international law and in engineering intercultural projects, as well as her experience in the field – including administration – have reinforced her conviction as to the added value of co-construction and the evaluation across all borders. Maïa started working in the field as an international volunteer and in the world heritage sector, before switching over to the performing arts. Before joining the On the Move network as Project Manager, she set up and co-ordinated different European projects . Otherwise, she also accompanies artists and cultural operators in the development of international strategies and equally intervenes on this theme within the framework of further and ongoing training sessions.
