ETC International Theatre Conference 2022: Diver-cities & Diverse Theatre for Europe's local communities



The ETC International Theatre Conferences are held twice a year at an ETC Member Theatre. These high-level events are an occasion for ETC Members and selected guests to explore new trends in European theatre, promote networking and raise awareness of current debates and challenges in European theatre. 

The next edition of the ETC International Theatre Conference will be hosted by Národní divadlo - National Theatre Prague (Czech Republic), 19-22 May 2022.

We're excited to already announce the inclusion of 'Diver-Cities & Diverse Theatre for Europe's Local Communities', a deep dive panel discussion inviting us to interrogate what is driving the working culture in our organisations and how we can make every aspect of theatre a safe, diverse space for art, artists, local communities and cities.

We're also introducing a brand new 'Talent Market', your chance to meet the next generation of European theatre talent alongside our 'In Focus: Ukraine 2022' event, a vital opportunity to come together as a community to support Ukrainian artists and theatres who are at war.
