2020 was full of challenges, but it also brought us opportunities. The global pandemic has reshaped the way we interact with the world. It sped up the digital transformation of OISTAT.
Over the year, thanks to all the international theatre professionals for being with us in OISTAT events and meetings. In 2020, more than 100 hours of OISTAT virtual events took place. This session we invite everyone to revisit the events highlight with us.

No matter how many session(s) you have participated over the previous five days, we hope you have a little taste of what OISTAT is like and that you had a great time.
To close our Congress this year, we decided to have a session revisiting the memory we shared four years ago. The idea behind this session can be traced back to World Stage Design 2017, held in Taipei, Taiwan. The exhibition site was in a campus that there were no bars around. 7-11 then became the place where OISTAT people gathered for snack and drinks after meetings.
In this session, we will turn online meeting room into a virtual 7-11 bar. Different virtual backgrounds will be provided for you to download, participants will be able to feel like as if you are chilling at a bar having some relaxing time with colleagues and friends, just with a little bit of imagination. Bring your own drink and let's make the most out of the last bit of the Congress.
