This programme creates a national framework for connecting children and young people with the theatre best suited to them. The Theatre4Youth site (www.theatre4youth.co.za) serves as a facilitating bridge between theatre and education, making it easy for schools to book excellent productions for their learners, and for theatre companies to tour productions to schools. It moderates the quality of the theatre presented in schools through a participatory feedback system, serves as a space for local artists to develop collaborations with communities as resident artists, and assists theatre companies in making their work more relevant and accessible to schools. There is also a print version of the catalogue available.
The Theatre4youth programme mentors and supports artists to take their work to schools or to communicate with schools about their programmes in theatres and at festivals. Through Theatre4Youth, we take children to the theatre and take theatre to children in creches, community halls, schools, theatres and other spaces. (We reached 70 361 beneficiaries in the 2016 financial year.)
There are three Theatre4Youth full-time coordinators, each based in a different province: Western Cape, Gauteng and KZN. We also have part-time representatives in other provinces.
This dynamic team ensures that ASSITEJ SA knows what is happening in all parts of the country and that we are able to strategize to connect artists with audiences and vice versa.
