Hi Carolina, thanks for your question. There is no one way to approach this. In the first instance I think it would be very worthwhile for you to explore more about set design, costume and prop making and to develop your networks. For instance are there certains aspects of set deisgn, costume and prop making that interest you? If you haven't already I would recommend you investigate different producing theatres and make an approach - email/contact individuals in specific theatres that most interest you and see if you can find a way to visit, find out more about them and their work, learn more about how they work, maybe share your interests and show them your portfolio, ask them if there are any ways you could get involved and contribute. Be proactive and I am sure you will find the right work experience or apprenticeship opportunity for you!
