Coronavirus pandemic: Theatres in Europe urge support from EU and Member States

The European Theatre Convention (ETC), ASSITEJ International, the Union des Théâtres de l’Europe (UTE), E:UTSA (Europe: Union of Theatre Schools and Academies), the European theatre network mitos21 and EAIPA (European Association of Independent Performing Arts) have issued a joined statement urging support from the EU and its Member States.
