[Registration is open!] The next edition of the ETC International Theatre Conference will exceptionally be held online from 10 to 12 June. 

The ETC Coffee Breaks are a (virtual) place for you to take a short moment to reflect, discuss and exchange with your international peers from the network.

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.

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

(Applications are now closed) A four-day seminar of master classes and workshops, offering broad and in-depth knowledge of curating and managing international theatre collaborations.

Supporting emerging theatre artists by offering new perspectives and professional artistic experiences in a European public theatre. 

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.
