Call for videos / pictures of the 70th Anniversary CelebrationsIn order to publicise the anniversary of ITI and showcase the fine work its members do, we are hoping to make a commemorative video. One special facet of the video will be a summary of the events the ITI Centres and Members organized this year as part of the 70th Anniversary, as we feel it would bring the video to life. For that, we simply ask the Centres and Members to send us a video - no more than 25-30 seconds long – or pictures about their activities for the 70th Anniversary of the International Theatre Institute.

ITI Inter-Europe Artist Exchange ProgrammeThe Committee for Emerging Artists (ITI NEAP) have been busy over the last few months working on projects all over the world. One of these has been the inaugural ITI Inter-Europe Artist Exchange Programme. After ITI Centres agreed to participate in the project, they were paired together in January via a draw and have since been working together to arrange to send emerging artists to their partnering countries for a short artistic residency. The aim is to give emerging artists the opportunity to create original work in a different cultural landscape from that which they're used to, and to give Centres around Europe the opportunity to strengthen ties and work together on a continent-wide project. The pairings are United Kingdom-Greece, Macedonia FYROM-Italy-Russia, and Switzerland-Slovenia. The dates of the exchanges can be found in the image below. So far, the artists selected to represent each country are as follows: United Kingdom: Adam Wheeler; Macedonia FYROM: Gorjan Milosevski; Slovenia: Dorian Silec and Switzerland: Stefanie Bölzli & Robert Diaz.
