This week, our 20 Years to NATC timeline celebrates one of many community gatherings that have been started over the last twenty years. Most recently, the European Taiko Community has come together for ETC, the European Taiko Conference.
NATC has inspired performers across the world to hold their own conferences! In 2016, the first European Taiko Conference was hosted by Kagemusha Taiko in Exeter, Devon, UK.
