ETC Activities

The next edition of the ETC International Theatre Conference will be held in Dresden (Germany). 

The ETC’s artistic collaboration project Young Europe III focuses on theatre as a place of identification for young people in Europe.

Our Stage introduces the idea of Bürgerbühne (literally “citizens’ stage”) – which is run the same way as a professional in-house production company but involves nonprofessional actors – as a new form of creative community outreach via artistic collaboration and as a new artistic business model.

The two-year applied research project European Theatre Lab set out to research a digital strategy for major European state-funded theatrical institutions with the goal of expanding access to the arts via new technology.

A four-day seminar of master classes and workshops, offering broad and in-depth knowledge of curating and managing international theatre collaborations.
