BICT Fest 2018 Forum: International Panel and SEA TYA Meeting

An important feature of BICT Fest is the BICT Fest Forum that runs alongside the festival’s showcase and workshops. The forum not only provides a place for audiences to reflect on subjects relating to the role of creativity in children’s development and theatre for young audiences, but also importantly provides a meeting point for artists and audiences to explore, discuss and exchange ideas in relation to the curated programmes. BICT Fest 2018 Forum is in collaboration with Chulalongkorn University.

This year’s forum consists of three parts:
1. An International Panel of Festival Programmers
2. Talks
3. Southeast Asia Theatre For Young Audiences Meeting
An International Panel of Festival Programmers (Japan, Scotland, Singapore, Thailand)

Topic: Why is it important to have an international theatre festival for young audiences?
