mitos21 is a network of some of Europe’s most influential theatre institutions. Its main objective is to create artistic instances where theatre professionals can meet, collaborate and work together, as well as jointly question and reconsider the role of theatre in contemporary society from their respective, diverse and unique professional backgrounds and experiences. The network’s activities place special emphasis on cross-border collaboration, peer-learning, as well as supporting the younger generations of artists and theatre professionals. Many among the members of mitos21 are at the forefront of embedding sustainability into their business models. The network’s 2013 “Sustainability and Culture Conference”, in partnership with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Greece and Goethe Institut Thessaloniki, brought international delegates to Thessaloniki to look at sustainability holistically, connecting the environmental, social and economic factors and showcasing best practice from within and beyond the network, and across Europe.
mitos21 has also established a “Green Managers” network, whose meeting in Paris, in October 2015, was part of the ArtCOP21 festival.
