ETC Activities

The next edition of the ETC International Theatre Conference will exceptionally be held online from 25 to 27 November 2020.

The “European Theatre Forum 2020: European Performing Arts in Focus” is an international platform for vision, discourse, exchange, networking and policymaking to strategically strengthen the structurally highly fragmented European theatre sector.

The ETC Coffee Breaks are a (virtual) place for you to take a short moment to reflect, discuss and exchange with your international peers from the network.

The two-year applied research project European Theatre Lab set out to research a digital strategy for major European state-funded theatrical institutions with the goal of expanding access to the arts via new technology.

The ETC’s artistic collaboration project Young Europe III focuses on theatre as a place of identification for young people in Europe.

Grants available! The Performance Exchange Programme is available to ETC Member Theatres wishing to invite a guest performance from another ETC Member Theatre. 

Grants available! ETC offers all technical, administrative and artistic personnel from Member Theatres the opportunity to exchange know-how and techniques at an ETC Member Theatre in another European country for a period of up to four weeks.
