The European Commission has announced the European Theatre Forum 2023, which will set the stage for a new roadmap for making Europe’s theatre sector "more sustainable, equitable and better-equipped to face current and future challenges."
It will be hosted at JK Opole Theatre in Opole, Poland, from 11-13 May 2023.
The event has three goals for the theatre sector to remain relevant in the future:
- Address the geopolitical and climate-related crises and their implications for the sector
- Address sustainable, digital and social challenges and practices in the sector
- Develop and adopt a comparable sustainability assessment tool for the whole sector to measure and reduce its carbon footprint
The European Theatre Forum 2023 follows on from the first Forum, organised in 2020, and the resulting policy document, the Dresden Declaration.
