An Encounter at the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering

A broadcast from Kristiansand!

Artists – meet your peers from every corner of the world, and hear delegates discussing and sharing ideas about the overall theme of the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering and how it relates to the performances on display. This video (which was live-streamed directly from the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2019), captures the introduction to the first Artistic Encounter of the event and also broadcasts various PechaKucha presentations from delegates.
