The International Childrens Theater Association (Assitej) world conference that this year took place in Montreal hosted 50 nations, among them Iran. The Iranian representative apparently publicly acknowledged the Israeli delegation and expressed the hope that their two counties might cooperate in the future. The conference also elected Mediateque general manager Dr. Razi Amitai to the Assitej board, the third time that an Israeli has served. Amitai replaces Hagit Rehbi-Nikolaevski, a playwright and former artistic director of the Orna Porat Children and Youth Theater.
