Ever since its very beginnings over 50 years ago, the journal Scena has been published by the esteemed theatre institution of Sterijino pozorje. The first edition of Yugoslav Theatre Festival of Sterijino pozorje took place in 1956 in Novi Sad. The idea was to have the most significant theatre festival in Yugoslavia organised in the very city from which the first theatre companies started their journeys towards Zagreb and Belgrade. The journal was founded with the objective to continually address current theatre matters from one issue to the next, present new local and global theatrology trends and publish at least one new local play per issue. In the desire to actively contribute to the development of local theatre life, Scena has more than once published thematic issues dedicated to puppet theatre, theatre for children and young people, theatre schools, as well as the phenomenon of child in theatre… In 2014, the editorial staff of the journal reaches the idea that the subjects related to theatre and education need be represented in every single issue, bearing in mind the significance of theatre education of young people.
