OPENDOEK's passion for theatre is not limited to the borders of Flanders and Brussels. OPENDOEK participates in various international projects and is a member of international partnerships. They also offer many playing opportunities for our members and affiliated companies. OPENDOEK wants to encourage its members to look for international contacts. On this page we present some of the international organizations that are important for the theater in leisure time.

Since 2018, OPENDOEK has been part of the international collaboration Future Telling. Future Telling is a unique summer theatre project in Slovenia where you get to know like-minded young people (between 18 and 30 years old) from six different countries. In addition to Belgium; Germany, Finland, Croatia, Slovenia and Israel are also among the participating countries. The participants immerse themselves in theatre workshops while getting in touch with different cultures.
EDERED (European Drama Encounters) is a multi-day European theatre encounter for young people. It has been around since 1982 and is always organized in one of the 17 partner countries.
Young people meet through drama and theater and are presented with a program consisting of intensive intercultural workshops and various social activities.
We are working towards a performance that will be shown to a local audience.
