European Theatre Convention

The European Theatre Convention (ETC) is a network of European public theatres founded in 1988 to promote contemporary drama theatre, to support the mobility of artists and to develop artistic exchange throughout Europe and  beyond.

With high quality creative and innovative theatre projects the ETC seeks to reaffirm the role of theatre, its intrinsic subversive force to shape a European public space, offering access to culture for all generations. Connecting theatre makers and the citizens of Europe, the ETC employs theatre to support  intercultural dialogue and with its activities, to develop  intercultural competence in our increasingly diverse societies in a hyper-competitive world. To respond to these challenges the ETC represents the member European theatres and participates in the exchange of good practices and good ideas between European institutions, member states and  civil society.

The ETC has become the largest pan-European network of its kind, representing over 40 member theatres in 25 countries.
