Dear mime friends,
This is the first time we organise the World Mime Conference. We want to bring together mime professionals, practitioners, theoreticians, researchers, artists and producers, professors and students, agents, festival organisers and financiers, our colleagues from theatre, dance, film, digital, broadcast and other media and people with hearing impairment having artistic needs and our beloved audience.
Mime needs our unity and strength arising from it or it will become an obsolete art form that had never found its place in the 21st century. If we do not take our future thus the future of mime in our hands no one will do it for us. We do not have time nor financial resources to stay apart, work and act alone. Sharing makes us stronger.
We herby invite you to take part in the First WORLD MIME CONFERENCE and make a difference. Come to meet in person with others involved in mime, exchange and develop ideas, inspire, collaborate, coproduce, make new friends. Meeting face-to-face can never be replaced by "social networks".
Take part in discussions and present your work, write articles for Wikipedia at the World Mime Edit-A-Thon writing marathon and if you are a university student perform at the FIST Word Mime Students Festival. Let us celebrate together the World Mime Day on 22nd of March.
Welcome to Belgrade, Serbia from March 21st to 23rd, a city with vivid history, culture and entertainment.
Looking forward to meeting you soon,
Marko Stojanović, President
Ofer Blum, Vice-President
