Artistic Council of Tyst Teater

In the fall of 2019, Tyst Teater has established an artistic council to guide and support Tyst Teater artistic leader Mindy Drapsa in artistic decisions. The mission is mainly to highlight what is artistically relevant and which shows a variety of artistic expressions in the deaf scene today.
