Call for Submissions of the ASSITEJ Online Magazine 2023

The ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2023 will be in Serbia from 20-24 November 2023 with the theme of Connecting Voices which is the second theme in our overarching dramaturgy of Regenerating.

 The ASSITEJ Magazine continues to be online and you can see the previous version from 2022. (https://magazine.assitejonline.org)

The magazine articles will be published in English and the original language of the author. We will create a magazine that communicates through images, films and text.  Both visuals and text should address the theme, Regenerating: Connecting Voices. We are aiming to regularly update this online Magazine with new articles, from June 2023 until the opening of the Artistic Gathering in November 2023.

This magazine calls for articles that envision the dramaturgy from numerous artistic perspectives. Some prompts might be:

  •  How do we as TYA artists and practitioners contribute to regeneration of the environment and society?
  • What do you think are the creative ways we could connect with all parts of the globe, with those who are not being heard, bringing new people forward?
  •  What is your response to the global demand to challenge traditional ways of creation and move to new forms of artistic work?
  • How do we as TYA practitioners co-work with members of social communities to tackle climate change and environmental issues?
  • What are the creative ways we could connect voices of our own TYA community which has been hugely in trouble since the beginning of the pandemic?
  • How could we help artists and theatres in a zone of conflict to regenerate?
  • How would you connect the voices of children and young people in this time of difficulties as a TYA artist or practitioner?
  • What would be ideas that address a sustainable way of international exchange in the performing arts?
  • Etc.
