An Academy for Young Artists


The ITI Academy debates the future of internationality and diversity in the performing arts.


Malin Nagel



The ITI Academy is an exchange and qualification programme for young cultural and theatre professionals consisting of various formats. The focus is on the future of internationality, transnationality and diversity in the performing arts. Starting from the Atelier Düsseldorf/Theater der Welt, a lively platform will be formed for encounter and discourse, bringing together different artistic, cultural-political and activist positions.

Which issues do inter- and transnationally active cultural workers currently need to focus on? How can global cooperation and collaborations be structured fairly? How can theatre productions and festivals be conceived and implemented sustainably and in solidarity during and after the Corona pandemic? Several times a year, the ITI Germany makes its rooms available to the ITI Academy for talks, cultural dialogues and workshops. The ITI Academy’s consistent highlight is the academy week, which accompanies the festival Theater der Welt every three years in a different city.

The starting point will be the Atelier Düsseldorf in June 2021 as part of Theater der Welt and in cooperation with The Festival Academy of the European Festival Association.   

The first academy’s workshop weekend will take place in autumn 2021 in the Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin. Transnational and globally active artists, experts from universities, culture and politics will analyse and discuss the experiences of the first academy week. The aim is to also generate new ideas and impulses for future ITI Academy events.
