The IATC is offering a workshop for young theatre critics, which will take place from 2 to 10 October 2019 in Iasi (Romania), thanks to the support of the International Theatre Festival for Young Audiences. There will be two working groups, one in English and one in French. If you are interested, you must apply as soon as possible, to be one of the 10 candidates accepted in each group. For this, you must be a professional critic aged between 18 and 35. All candidates are invited to send their application form with a brief CV (just one page!), 2 or 3 samples of articles already published in media and a letter of recommendation from the person in charge of the AICT/IATC section in your country (if your country has a national IATC section or is part of a regional section). All these documents must be sent in a single PDF file, if possible. Please note the following:
1) Candidates must send their application themselves with their CV, not have them sent by the IATC/AICT sections.
2) Make sure you have a good verbal expression of the English or French language.
Accommodation will be in shared rooms, and meals are included for lunch and dinner. You will receive a free pass for all the shows and for the discussions that will take place during the Festival. You will be picked up at the airport or train station.
The names of the monitors will be announced later, but the Canadian critic Alvina Ruprecht has already agreed to be in charge of one of the groups. 
The candidacies will be accepted until August 31, 2019. They must be sent to the director of workshops, Jean-Pierre Han: [email protected]. A final list of all chosen participants will be announced as soon as possible, to allow time for preparing your trip and for obtaining, if needed, a visa for Romania.

* The programme is divided in the following way: the morning shows are for children, the afternoon ones are for teenagers and the evening shows are for adults. Street shows are also scheduled.
