György is a theatre director and drama pedagogue from Budapest, Hungary, working as principal director in Kolibri Theatre, the leading theatre for children and youth in Hungary.

I have been a Board member of the Hungarian Centre of ASSITEJ since 2010. I am part of the organising team of our national ASSITEJ festival and representing Hungary in various international events, like the ASSITEJ World Congresses and Artistic Gatherings.
