ASSITEJ World Congress

ASSITEJ holds their World Congress every 3 years to establish the working plan for the next 3 years. An international festival is also organised to present a selection of the world’s most outstanding works in theatre for children and young people. It is the most important event for ASSITEJ and those who are involved in theatre for young audiences. Every year between two World Congresses, ASSITEJ holds an Artistic Gathering which focuses on artistic exchange.

The 19th ASSITEJ World Congress which took place in 2017 in South Africa, about 2,000 people from about 70 countries participated and 63 productions from 32 countries took part in the festival.

​サポーターについて

子どもや若者が芸術文化に触れられる「未来フェス2020」。

その取り組みに対し、今回応援メッセージが届きました!

教育評論家・法政大学名誉教授

尾木直樹(尾木ママ)

理系と芸術を融合させた最先端の教育手法「STEAM教育」が注目を集めています。AIやグローバル化が進展する世界で、複雑な諸課題を解決するには、芸術の持つ創造力や表現力が科学・技術・工学・数学と共に求められているのです。

近年、日本の学校は「学力向上」が至上命題となっており、演劇鑑賞教室等の文化行事が削減傾向にあります。演劇や芸術は子どもたちの豊かな感性や探求心を育てるだけでなく、HQ(人間性知能)や非認知能力をも育みます。

今回、記念すべき20回大会が初めて日本で開催されると聞き、ワクワクしています。今大会が子どもたちや教育界に大きな刺激を与え、日本の未来に希望の光を灯すに違いありません。心より期待しています。

About logo concept

I made the motif of the bird from the image that the children's creativity will fly into the future!

The color of the bird expresses joyful, sad, fun, love, joy!

The color of the letters represents the sky and the sun.
