ITI's 2011 International Theatre Exchange was attended by 40 hand-picked international presenters and programmers and by a broad and diverse range of Irish theatre makers and production companies. This annual event is supported by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Culture Ireland.

October 2011 was the 18th edition of Irish Theatre Institute's International Theatre Exchange. Over the past 18 years numerous exciting international touring opportunities have been created by ITI for Irish companies from both the Republic and Northern Ireland. In the past four years alone, shows have toured to Auckland, Wellington, Sydney, Cape Town, Johannesburg, London, Edinburgh, Tampere, Wiesbaden, Paris, Toronto, Washington, Portland and New York.

International Theatre Exchange is ITI’s flagship networking event and this year 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 (see Live Streaming and Discussions) and the event proved very successful for both the Irish participants and the international guests.

Registration for this event is now closed.
