All of the materials on the website, compiled in Azerbaijani, Russian and English, contain information about important events in the history of the Union and its current activity.
Founded in 1897 as Union of Artists, the organization continued its activity as Union of Muslim Artists from 1917, Union of Turkish Actors from 1920, Azerbaijan Theater Society from 1945, and on February 27, 1987 by the order of the founding conference was renamed into the Union of Theater Workers of Azerbaijan. Despite the fact that throughout the entire period of its rich history it has been operating under different names, from the moment of its creation to the present day, the Union has served one goal - the development and promotion of our national theatrical art.
The Union of Theater Workers, which has passed a glorious path of development, was headed by the great artists of Azerbaijan, and under their leadership, it acquired rich experience and continued its activities in accordance with the requirements of the times.
Since the 1950s, the organization has taken on the responsibility of promoting and supporting the dramatic arts to the masses, as of today it also has a wealth of experience in international relations. The Union is a member of the International Confederation of Theater Unions and the UNESCO International Theater Institute. In addition, the Union is engaged in the implementation of projects that have an impact on the further activation of the theatrical process in various sections, the creation of mutually beneficial relations with government agencies, creative associations and unions related to culture, science and education in accordance with the current legislation,
