International Theatre Exchange is ITI’s flagship networking event and in 2011 we looked at the subject of 'Sustainability in the Theatre'. Over three days 40 presenters and producers from key venues and festivals across the world including Hong Kong, Tasmania, Sydney, South Africa, Czech Republic, Germany, Paris, New York, Washington, Toronto and the UK met with and saw the work of Irish theatre-makers.

Many important issues were addressed in a programme of panel discussions and presentations and the event proved very successful for both the Irish participants and the international guests. Visit VIMEO at the links below to view the International Theatre Exchange presentations and panel discussions.
