We were approached by the Executive Director Anastasia Vorontsova about joining AITA/IATA. Anastasia explains that ART was created by the American Association for Russian Language, Culture and Education (AARCE). Its purpose is to help preserve the Russian language and culture in the United States, support the achievements of and communication between Russian-speaking people, and exchange creative ideas.
- ART unites theatres, organisations and individuals in America who make theatre using Russian language for children, young people, and adults.
- ART is dedicated to the artistic, cultural and educational rights of Russian speaking people and advocates on behalf of all regardless of nationality, cultural identity, ethnicity, or religion.
- ART brings people together so that they can share knowledge and practice within the field of theatre in order to deepen understandings, develop practice, create new opportunities and strengthen the global sector, on behalf of all everywhere.
We look forward to learning more about their work and seeing them at future international festivals.
