European OFF Network was established in 2005 at a meeting of European fringe theatre, dance and performance groups, and has since expanded to cover the whole world.
The network is open for persons and organizations of members and non-members of the European Union.
The European OFF network (EON) is a network for both individual artists and artists' companies creating work at the fringe of the theatre sector. EON is an independent international network of Artists and Programmers working to develop professional practice and opportunities and conditions for working through networking, peer support, sharing of information, collaboration and advocacy. It aims to act as a forum for discussion, exploring common issues and methodologies in order to engage with peers, audiences, local regional national and international government, development agencies, funders and the media to support the development of the independent sector.
EON is a network. As such, there is no infrastructure - no office, no staff and no direct way to contact EON other than by email. There is a steering group made up of Key Persons from a variety of countries, which carries out managerial and development functions on behalf of the network. If you would like to speak to someone, please e-mail with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the steering group will contact you.
EON organized an international three-day meeting of practitioners in 2005 and another in May 2007. EON also intends to organize similar events on an annual or biannual basis. Recent meetings identified the following priorities for the Network:
