Czech Republic joined the European Theatre Night as new co-organizer partner country with their Arts and Theatre Institute in Prague.
The Arts and Theatre Institute, www.idu.cz, as a governmental organization, funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, would like to organize and unite Czech theatres and artistic organizations in our project this year.
Their mission is to provide the Czech and international public with a comprehensive range of services in the field of theatre and individual services connected to other branches of the arts (music, literature, dance and visual arts). The Arts and Theatre Institute collects objects and work relating to the theatre, processes and provides access to them, pursues research, initiates and participates in international projects, and publishes scholarly work. They are also the headquarters of the Czech Office of the EU Culture Programme (Czech Cultural Contact Point).
The Arts and Theatre Institute is very suitable as the main coordinator of Czech theatres and will be able to promote the event and provide necessary conditions for communication among participants.
