The challenge of digitality has arrived at all Institutions of the Arts. The ITI/UNESCO Network for Higher Education in Performing Arts formed a working group to investigate the theme of Hybrid Education – the combination of online training and classroom tuition.

Digitality is not a technical question but a cultural competence. Today we are facing the need for substantial changes in education in general. New demands for innovation of content and methodology arise in the educative process. How do we imagine the future of teaching? How does the digital mindset affect the process of acting, stage presence, dramaturgy, and methodological tools for artistic development?

During the International Theatrical Educational Forum – Festival “Nauruz” experts from all continents will meet during three days to discuss visionary models for artistic education, to exchange practical knowledge regarding the concept and construction of online modules and hybrid training.

Any interested scientist or practitioner in the field of education, theatre training or production is invited to join and share experience.

While the first two days will take the shape of a work meeting, all participant of the festival will be invited to join the open panel discussion on the 12th of June.
The colloquium language will be English and Russian.
