María Sepúlveda, General Director of FITA Chile, tells us that the idea of giving life to the fair was born from the experience of different companies of ASSITEJ/Te Veo Chile, who have participated in different international fairs for children an youth (in Europe, Asia and North America) and were able to see the importance of showing, sharing and projecting their works.
By this experience, we realized that an activity of this nature that convene Ibero- American artist, for companies that work with children an youth, does not exists.
The admission process of this first edition of FITA Chile, was a success, we received more than 75 application forms from companies all over the world. Some of the selected works will show their whole work in the Showcase and others will exhibit a piece of their work for the delegates.
For all the artists, FITA Chile opens a new window of opportunities, where they will be able to show their work in front of delegates from all over the world, interested in projecting internationally the best of Ibero-American performing arts for children and youth.
