Idea of the Congress

The ASSITEJ World Congress is the most important meeting of all the members of the ASSITEJ International Association, which takes place every three years. The Congress is a time to evaluate the three previous years of work and to plan future developments in the theatre for young viewers. The last ASSITEJ World Congress in Copenhagen and Malmő gathered 1,600 participants. The motto of the 2014 edition is “FACING THE AUDIENCE”: theatre for children and young people which understands the changes its viewers are undergoing, follows them and reacts to them. Special focus will be given to the following three themes: theatre for the very youngest, theatre for teenagers and the inclusive theatre (created by representatives of socially excluded groups and directed to the wide audience).
During the Congress we will try to convince you that…
THEATRE HAS NO LIMITS
ART HAS NO LIMITS
WARSAW HAS NO LIMITS
AUDIENCE HAS NO LIMITS
COOPERATION HAS NO LIMITS
