🗓 25 January 2019

ASSITEJ Norway welcomes you to the international ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering (AAG) in Kristiansand 2nd-7th of Sept 2019.

We are now calling for proposals for the professional program of the AAG. We’re looking for workshops, seminars, talks and debates. The main target group will be professional performers, scholars and educators within the field of theatre for young audiences.

The ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering is the international movement`s largest and most important gathering of artists, scholars, presenters and buyers of performing arts for young audiences. Several hundred delegates from all over the world are expected to the picturesque coastal town of Kristiansand in the very south of Norway. The events will take place within a radius of less than 2 kilometers, with the stunning Kilden Theatre and Concert Hall as the main venue.

“Towards the Unknown – Confronting the Present”

«Towards the Unknown» is the overall theme into which ASSITEJ has engaged this three- year period, and at the gathering in Kristiansand we will confront the present to take us one step further. What is the status of the performing arts for young audiences around the world today? We think much depends on how we see the child, and how we define childhood. How are our different views on childhood reflected in the performing arts today?
