International Network of Women in Contemporary Theatre

I believe the link I added recently was not successful, so here is the information regarding Cardiff 2011 Magdalena 25th years celebration as International Network of Women in Contemporary Theatre, which was announced September 2009.

A Celebration Festival of Magdalena 1986 - 2011

Wales - August 12th – 21st 2011

In 2011 The Magdalena Project will be 25 years old. Over those years so many festivals, gatherings and events have happened across the world made possible through the fortitude of some extraordinary women artists defiantly determined to give an equality of voice to women’s work in theatre. Just see the chronology on the Magdalena website.

The very first festival was in Cardiff and it is natural that a celebration of this coming of age again be hosted in Wales.

So this is a first announcement and invitation to all those who want to be a part of this event. Thousands of women artists worldwide have been touched by and feel a part of this network. Many will want to come and we want to welcome as many as possible.

Each festival has its unique character determined by national cultural, financial and social realities. We all know that funding is limited everywhere. In 2012 London hosts the Olympics and this means pressure on funding will be acute. The team in Wales will do everything we can but we know we will only be able to financially support accommodation, food, travel and participation for a few artists. If you want to come please start saving now! We want you to be a part of this celebration of 25 years of women’s achievement in theatre.

The Festival will be in two parts:
12th – 14th August 2011 in Aberystwyth University. This will be a conference and a chance to evaluate the legacy of the Magdalena and we will be making a call to those who feel they can contribute to this debate and a new publication. Those with university connections should be able to get funded to attend.

15th-21st August 2011 will be a Festival of new work in Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff – the birthplace of the Project. We will give space to all generations; both established and emerging women artists. Please send proposals for your inclusion.

The programme will begin to be finalised this time next year.

(Announced Sept 2009)
