2020 is a year with even more challenges for the performing arts community all over the world.

Almost all the Centres of ITI are not able to celebrate World Theatre Day with an event because of the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. Therefore, the General Secretariat Team of ITI initiates that all the members and friends celebrate World Theatre Day 2020 - online.
We have received a lot message reading videos from ITI Centre in the country’s language, and other videos to share peoples’ enthusiasm, wishes for the future theatre and so on.
Let´s be united in this action for the benefit of each and everybody who loves, theatre and shares our values for a culturally rich and peaceful world.
