The European Alliance for Culture and the Arts calls for an open and multi-stakeholder debate on how to design a citizen-centred, truly effective and forward-looking Cohesion Policy, aimed at ensuring a prosperous and sustainable future for the European Union and each European citizen.

Seit zwei Jahren kann man es wissen: Es herrscht eine krasse Schieflage im Theaterbetrieb, wenn es um die Repräsentanz von Frauen und Männern geht: In Leitungspositonen und im Regie-Fach gibt es sehr viel weniger Frauen als Männer, unter den aufgeführten Schauspielautor*innen sind sie in der Minderzahl, ebenso wie zumeist in den Ensembles.

Wales’ deserved reputation for choric excellence has something much more keenly to do with communities, with social centre-points, but also with performance.
