World Theatre Day 2018

Spread the love

Today is about celebrating culture, education and the arts. First organised in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and UNESCO, it now celebrated in more than 90 countries around the world by lots of different institutes and education centres from schools to theatres.

The basic message is about theatre and international harmony, and ITI usually invite someone to speak on this theme which is then translated into over 50 languages and broadcast through hundreds of media stations.

The International Theatre Institute was founded in 1948, just after the end of World War II and just before the iron curtain fell on Eastern Europe with the cold war. The founders were first UN General Secretary Sir Julian Huxley and playwright JB Presley.

The aims of its founders were to build an organisation that would align with UNESCO’s goals on culture, education and the arts and to empower all members of the performing arts industry whatever their status.
