ITI/UNESCO Network for Higher Education in the Performing Arts

Projects

UNESCO, the International Theatre Institute and the member institutions of the ITI/UNESCO Network for Higher Education in the Performing Arts follow similar goals, share similar views and values, and create several projects together. Some of them are specific events, others are permanent thematic working groups. The following projects constitute the core of the Network.

New projects and Project Groups are called on to emerge from the ITI/UNESCO Network interactions. They need to be submitted to the Board and approved by the Board and also at the next General Assembly.

Here is a brief overview about the ongoing projects.

The Network proposes to create a body capable of dealing with this issue so as to better facilitate cooperation between universities around the world. Experts keen to collaborate are welcome.
