The European Theatre Convention is delighted to organise two high-profile events in the heart of the Festival d'Avignon on Friday 7 July, to meet and exchange with other international theatre makers.
14:30-16:30 European Theatre Talks at Avignon
16:30-18:00 ETC Reception
European Theatre Talks
The European Theatre Talks are a new series at the Festival d’Avignon, anchoring the much-needed dialogue between artists, the public and European policymakers at one of the world’s most important theatre festivals.
Organised by the European Theatre Convention, this year’s talks explore the next steps for The Opole Recommendations, the high-level policy document created by the theatre and performing arts sector as a result of the European Theatre Forum (ETF) 2023.
The speakers will bring forward a new guiding tool to ‘green’ European Theatre; the opportunities and challenges presented by a digital theatre platform; and how to promote the next generation of European theatre makers and artists.
The conversation will include input from additional European artists and will be led by Maria Delgado, theatre academic and moderator of the ETF 2023.
