Mission and membership
The idea of setting up a professional European theatre network was first raised in November 2004 at the inaugural meeting of representatives of theatres and festivals from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, Russia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Turkey, which was held in Bitola, Macedonia. Striving to overcome local, regional, and national interests in a sense of developing synergies on a European level, NETA members engage in international co-productions and exchange of performances, thus contributing to cultural diversity and intercultural exchange.
In 2010 there were 23 NETA Association signatories, from Albania (2), Bosnia and Herzegovina (2), Bulgaria (2), Croatia (2), Italy (2), Macedonia (4), Montenegro (1), Russia (1), Serbia (3), Turkey (1) and Slovenia (3). The Slovene representatives are Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica, Slovene National Theatre Maribor, and Eẋ Ponto International Festival.
In 2015 the NETA network assembles 69 theatres and festivals from 20 European countries.
