The enormous impacts brought by the COVID-19 since the beginning of 2020 are still in the hearts and on the minds of the performing arts community. The pandemic is challenging all professionals to reflect on the situation of the performing arts – and it is challenging the students too. Many institutions of the ITI/UNESCO Network have launched artistic and educational activities online; Many experts and scholars have expressed their views on the development of performing arts in this pandemic in live discussions or conferences. But what about the viewpoint of the students?
The intention to create a Student Conference during the Second Student Festival (Online) on the theme: Theatre in and Beyond the Time of COVID-19 is to give the young, the students a platform to express their voices.
The members of the ITI/UNESCO Network for Higher Education in the Performing Arts are interested in what the next generation of performing artists and future educators conceive to be necessary, what questions they have, what visions they own and what thoughts and ideas they want to share. This open platform is a contribution to the continuous development of the performing arts – now and in future. If the format of this Conference is of benefit to the participating students and educators, it will develop a second edition.
