Our Members: National Centres and Affiliates
A National Centre is a national network, a concentrator of activities, local and global, working proactively in the field of amateur theatre and an official body representing amateur theatre activity on a national level. Due to specific political structures in some countries, several National Centres can be functioning as representative bodies of self-governing territories as a part of these countries.
