Open Letter from the Lithuanian NC

We got an open letter from the Lithuanian NC (Danute Vaigauskaite):

 

Dear Colleagues from the National Centers all over the World!

 

Since 1952 the AITA/IATA was carefully created step by step leading by the most intelligent World Presidents.

During 65 years IATA successfully existed through Regions and National Centers.

It took three years for Lithuania to create the Lithuanian National Center and become a Member of the AITA/IATA in 1993! It was great to be a member of the AITA/IATA’ Family!

During 23 years 9 Lithuanian amateur theater groups were selected to the World AITA/IATA Festivals (4 times Monaco, then El Jadida, Halifax, Massan, Tromso, Ypres) because the National Center could organize the selection process and guarantee the quality of the performances representing country in the World!

Today we have in Lithuania approx. 300 adult and 500 children theater groups. Every year we have a review – contest of the performances and know very well the quality of the groups. Theater experts of the NC are involved in the process and are responsible giving recommendation to the groups to participate in the Official IATA or Regional Festivals.

Nаtional Center as a member of the AITA/IATA has a strong position in Lithuania.

Leaving NC with “one vote” at the AITA/IATA Congress – loosing the strength of the National Center, loosing the quality of the amateur art at the World Festivals of the AITA/IATA. Without artistic goals – AITA/IATA has no Future! 

We understand that the AITA/IATA needs some changes, more money etc.

But equalize the NC to just one theater group – is the biggest mistake! 

The Lithuanian National Center invites all colleague to save the National Center as a basic body of activity of the AITA/IATA and leave 6 (or at least 3) votes at the Congress of AITA/IATA!

 

Happy New Year to all of you!

Happy New Year to the AITA/IATA based on the National Centers!

 

On behalth of the Lithuanian National Center
