European Theatre Convention (ETC)'s Executive Director, Heidi Wiley, is the cover star for the 194th edition of CorD magazine, a leading current affairs and lifestyle magazine from Serbia!
The article is titled 'Theatre is Fundamental For Our Society' and sees Heidi discuss:
- The growth of ETC since it was founded
- The launch of the European Theatre Initiative by the European Commission
- The European Theatre Forum
- The challenges for the theatre sector during the Coronavirus pandemic
"The pandemic has shown – from one day to the next – that it is possible to shutdown all theatres, to stop all of our activities, to stop international collaboration in Europe and around the world. In other words, if our raison d’être can be taken away from one day to the next, it is very important to have a collective political voice in today’s society, to remain visible and relevant. At the national level, but also very much at the European level. Theatre is fundamental to our society."
