The Education commission exists to facilitate international dialogue in the field of scenography, design for performance and theatre technology education and to foster quality, innovation and mobility.

Who We Are
Members of the commission are set, costume, lighting designers and theatre technicians who are also dedicated teachers with strong interest in internationalism in design education. Each OISTAT National Centre has it’s official delegate to the commission. When the official delegate is not able to attend, the center can send an alternate delegate. Associate OISTAT members can also have their representatives to the commission. Individual members and guests are also welcome to participate in our activities.

We meet once yearly by invitations of design and technology schools and OISTAT Centres. At our meetings we exchange teaching approaches and ideas, we share about achievements and challenges. The schedules of our meetings consist of :
