The Who, What and Why of ASSITEJ in 1986

By the beginning of 1986, Director Michael FitzGerald had the preparations for the 1987 ASSITEJ World Congress in Adelaide well in hand. He was using Lowdown to broadcast the latest news about the Congress to Australia and the 43 national centres of ASSITEJ. The March 1986 issue included a 17-page report detailing the theme of the Congress, his travels, accounts of meetings and impressions of festivals.

This report is now a fascinating document of its time, giving an insight into the practices of many countries in that era, and also into the early careers of some prominent practitioners.
