We are happy to invite you to read the article The Story of Postponing The End of the World to get acquainted with the new initiative of young artists that is currently developing in our region with the full support of ASSITEJ Serbia. The first impulse for gathering young and recognized artists from the region was the Next Generation residency program „ Limitations & Challenges in Performing Arts for Children and Young People“ held in 2018 in Novi Sad, organized by ASSITEJ Serbia. Connected and inspired by this experience, a group of participants in this program created and launched the From the First Step platform, which will play an important role in organizing the Next Generation program in the frame of the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2023 in Serbia.
