 By Emilie Robert, EC Member of ASSITEJ International

In mid-September, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a note to subsidized cultural structures suspending all collaboration with Malian, Burkinabé or Nigerien artists in the name of security. This announcement provoked numerous protest reactions in France and compromised projects, due to a lack of predictable outcome to the conflicts concerned.

This announcement shocked me, not only because I am currently sharing a project with the director of the Théâtre Soleil in Ouagadougou. A few weeks earlier, I was in Johannesburg, welcomed with my colleagues from the Executive Committee, by ASSITEJ South Africa and the Cradle of Creativity festival. I saw very powerful shows there, particularly those from the African continent. I discovered remarkable artists, some very young, and took part in some really interesting conferences and discussions. I came back enthusiastic about such artistic and human richness. Excluding some of these artists from future projects is unacceptable to me.

When diplomacy subjugates art, it forgets that it brings people together beyond borders and cannot comply with the rules of military and political conflicts. It has its own confrontations, but above all it connects men, women, children, young people, artists and spectators. 

ASSITEJ, like the art itself, brings together artists and professionals from around the world, through its site and its newsletters, but even more at the Congresses and during the Artistic Gatherings. The next gathering will take place soon, in Belgrade and Nov Sad (Serbia) from November 20. We hope to see a large number of members of the international community of TYA there.

Beforehand, we invite you to join us for the two “Coffee Sessions” that my colleague, Ernie Nolan, and I will devote to LGBTQ+ issues in live performance aimed at children and youth, after sessions dedicated to diversity and deaf culture last season. We are continuing our online meetings dedicated to diversity, inclusion, meeting others, and respecting each person. These are strong values, which carry performing arts for children and youth.

They are also embodied in the group which works on political strategy issues within the executive committee, in the committee dedicated to accessibility, in the promotional campaigns for the World Theater Day for Children and Youth, etc. They are carried by each and every one of us in our daily activities.

Art connects and, even more so, performing arts for children and youth, which bring together generations and all audiences. ASSITEJ represents these values and these links. The Executive Committee and the team are the vectors.

Members of ASSITEJ, let's gather, meet, stand in solidarity, online or in person, in Serbia, Cuba, and everywhere else whenever the opportunity is given to us. Our solidarity and our commitment are our strength in the face of political or military conflicts, upheavals and economic and ecological crises.

Upholding The Rights Of The Child
 
 

 

ASSITEJ International upholds the rights of the child and defends young people’s place as contributors, cultural actors, and valued members of society.

We acknowledge that because of our audience, our work intersects with education, with families and their welfare, with justice, and with community well-being. It is tied strongly to resilience and the development of confidence, to the inspiration of hope and imagination. We cannot stand by in silence when we witness the actions, the policies, and the conflicts that impact strongly on the rights and hopes of children and young people.

ASSITEJ International rejects the adoption of violent conflict and recognises the appalling impact of such actions on children and their lives. We know that many of our members are dealing first hand with the results of violence and we support and applaud artists everywhere who provide tools for expression through art and who are working to maintain hope where it is most under threat.

Blickfelder Festival 

Who doesn't know them, the bizarre, funny figures that are created by several people together? They draw one after the other but do not know what the previous person has drawn. This playful method, also called "cadavre exquis", was invented by the surrealists in the 1920s. It gives space to spontaneity without what is widespread in the adult world: critical thinking. Just draw together and let yourself be surprised! Blickfelder Festival draws attention to these wonderful moments and invites you between 18 September and 18 October 2023 to draw and shape Blickfelder Festival 2024!
