Open Call for initiators – Next Generation activities

The Next Generation Network aims to increase opportunities for early-career artists to participate in Next generation projects for the benefit of participants and in order to invigorate the world of theatre for young audiences.

 We are interested in hearing from any organisations, festivals or individuals who might be interested in creating a new Next Generation residency, placement programme or NG project as part of their own activities outside of the annual ASSITEJ Artistic Gatherings.

–        Could hosting a group of international early-career artists, producers or administrators add value to your prorgamme?

–        Could you bring together NG alumni (previous participants) from your own country or region to build on their experiences and to share skills?

–        Are there funding opportuntiies the network could help you tap into for a new NG initiative?


Projects could be led by an established theatre or festival with no previous NG experience or by a NG alumni working with their National Centre or host organisation.

 If you are interested in any of the above or would like to discuss how we can support you to set up a NG project, we would love to hear from you. For more info please email Nina at
