Thank you to everyone who applied to be part of the Next Generation programme. We had 137 applications from 39 different countries, which is a wonderful response. We are going through the submissions at the moment and will contact all those who applied in November, to let them know the outcome.
Thanks also to those who submitted a paper to be part of the Symposium. We are working closely with colleagues from all the ASSITEJ networks on this to develop an exciting programme for the Artistic Encounter. We received 70 proposals to present work as part of the Symposium, from 22 countries.
We are liaising with companies we wish to include in the Artistic Programme, and are starting to schedule what is promising to be a diverse and exciting festival. We are presenting work in venues across Birmingham, including Birmingham REP, mac birmingham, The Patrick Centre at Birmingham Hippodrome, and The Old Rep.
ON THE EDGE 2016 is the World Festival of Theatre for Young Audiences and ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering. It takes place in Birmingham, UK from 2nd – 9th July 2016 and is presented by TYA-Ireland and TYA-UK. To keep informed about developments, visit the website and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
