ASSITEJ Artistic Gatherings & World Congresses

Every year, ASSITEJ International, in collaboration with an ASSITEJ National Centre, holds its flagship international event – either a World Congress or an Artistic Gathering.

The World Congress and Performing Arts Festival for Children & Young People is the premier meeting of ASSITEJ International members in each three-year term of its Executive Committee.

The ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering (AAG) takes place in each of the years between the triennial ASSITEJ World Congresses.
