ASSITEJ Germany’s yearbook discusses structures for the arts

IXYPSILONZETT, ASSITEJ Germany’s yearbook 2018 on Theatre for Young Audiences , has been published in cooperation with the Berlin-based publisher “Theater der Zeit”. It presents central results of an empirical study, challenges theatre as a work place, discusses how structures and budgets operate and how artistic practice is reflected. The publication calls for courage to let participation happen. Children have the right to fully participate in arts and culture, but how and where is this reality? How do arts and education go together in concepts and policies?

IXYPSILONZETT Premiere at Festival Panoptikum on Wednesday, January 24, 12-12.30 h
