19 playwrights from 9 European countries, a geography of voices blended in a multi-lingual, inclusive, and supportive environment. Starting with its network of writers and welcoming new ones, Fabulamundi is shaping a new chapter in its story by gathering a community of authors as co-creators of an extensive training path. This committed and democratic space provides the opportunity to discover, process, understand, organize, and share experiences with a European generation of emerging playwrights. Crossing disciplinary borders, the FAB Community offers a wide range of workshops developed locally in each partner country and amplified internationally thanks to a twinned mobility scheme. All laboratories involve a second visiting playwright, matched with the resident one, to nurture dialogue and enrich the debate and exchange. The 19 playwrights are mentors to a vast audience of youngsters who are called to join the project, and at the same time, are mentored by a group of international experts in a professional training program specifically designed to empower their artistic trajectory and raise their awareness around three core themes: gender and inclusiveness, green theatre, and digitization.
What does it mean to be part of the Fab Community?
Fabulamundi showed me how much connects and divides societies in Europe, but above all – how differently and similarly we experience life. This dualism – seemingly so obvious – is very important to me: I would not have seen it if it weren’t into the movement that Fabulamundi puts us writers in. Mihaela Michailov
Listen, learn, share experiences, transmit them, establish links and complicities, open that door to the world so that, later, at the solitude of the desktop, we can return to silence, to words. Being part of the Fabulamundi community enables us many of these healthy and necessary things on a different, broader, more enriching scale. And all of them undoubtedly fuel my writing.

Theatre is a place of real time, of friction, of quiet moments and loud ones, it can touch young people and older ones. I am very happy to be part of this complex process in which different arts work together in the best case. Alexandra Koch
I appreciate the opportunity to be part of the Fabulamundi network, which successfully breaks down my preconceived notions and provides me with a valuable dialogue not just with other playwrights across European cultures. I consider the exchange and sharing of creative experiences with other professionals in the field to be a vital part of my professional life. David Košťák
