“A satisfactory arrangement” -- Nasiruddin Yousuff

Nasiruddin Yousuff is the Organising Secretary of Bangladesh Centre of International Theatre (BCITI). He served as the president of the Committee for Cultural Identity and Development (CIDC), a part of the ITI Worldwide Committee, three times. Currently he is the Director of CIDC. The committee focuses on promoting dramatic forms and expressions, which are essential components of cultural identity. Current CIDC projects deal with wide-ranging themes such as resolving socio-political conflicts through artistic collaboration.
The convenor of the reception committee at the ITI Theatre Festival, Yousuff said, “This year's arrangement is satisfactory. Nineteen foreign delegates have arrived in Dhaka to participate at the festival, in which leading troupes of the country will stage their popular productions. For the third time the Worldwide Executive Committee meeting is being held here.”
“We are arranging workshops, however, BCITI should consider arranging other activities such as producing plays involving the leading artistes of the country. The foreign experts can also contribute to this type of theatre,” Yousuff added.
Nasiruddin Yousuff believes that with the help of UNESCO, ITI should introduce scholarships in theatre at the universities in the west for students from the developing countries. This can develop the technical standard of world theatre, which is currently in turmoil.
