In 2017 two anniversaries took place – ASSITEJ Estonia celebrated its 25th birthday as well as the 5th appearance of the festival "Theatre for Young Audiences". Both of these are remarkable achievements for a small organisation whose members are boosted by their good will contributing free time and skills to offer the best of theatrical experience for small viewers. Congratulations on these small jubilees, we wish honest mind and determination to develop and improve the theatre for young public.
Sincere thanks to Hiie Fluss – the main promoter who 25 years ago started the ASSITEJ Estonia next to VAT Theatre. The organisation very soon became a full right member of the Assitej International – association uniting children and youth theatres all over the world. And congratulations to all members of ASSITEJ Estonia whose matter of heart throughout the years has been looking after the welfare of children`s theatres.
