The ASSITEJ World Congress is calling for:

Online productions are also encouraged to apply.
Professional Exchange Programme Sessions including workshops, seminars, lectures, roundtables, meetings, networking sessions, film screenings, exhibitions, social events, and other formats related to performing arts for young audiences (sessions may be presented ‘On the Ground’, ‘Online’, or a ‘Hybrid’ of both).
