Between 17th and 22nd of May 2022, Bibu together with ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering invites you to a six-day festival with Swedish and international theatre, dance, and circus performances for children and young people together with a wide range of seminars, debates, workshops, and other performing arts-related surprises. 

Bibu is the most important meeting place with, for, and about professional performing arts for young audiences in Sweden – an arena where all of us working with children, youth, performing arts and culture meet every other year to experience and discuss performing arts for children and young people. 

The theme for the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering 2022 is “Leave No One Behind” and is based on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals which is the most ambitious development agenda ever approved by the United Nations. The Artistic Gathering in 2022 will create an international meeting place for professional practitioners to focus on how sustainability can alter our global processes, co-operation, and performances in the future
