FairCulture International Youth Theatre Festival was a festival which was organised by the Federal Association of Drama & Theatre, BAG, the JungesSchauspiel at the State Theatre Hannover and the City of Hannover Agenda 21-Büro and Kulturbüro in collaboration with numerous national and international cooperation partners.

Accompanying the festival, a symposium was held with the following question:

Can theatre bring about social change or intensify it? Are Artists "agents of perfect change"? Is theatre at risk of losing its sense of independence as a result of this? What effects can theatre work have on the social situation of those involved?

Taking concrete practical examples from the "fairCulture" International Youth Theatre Festival as a starting point, the symposion discussed a form of theatre which seeks to promote education, social awareness and self-determination.
