ASSITEJ Korea celebrated the 2017 World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People.
Last March 20th, 2017, ASSITEJ Korea hosted a ceremony to share the World Day Messages sent from ASSITEJ International with ASSITEJ Korea members. The World Day film featured by ASSITEJ International was screened as well in this celebration of The World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People.
Along with promoting the “Take a Child to the Theatre Today” campaign, this year ASSITEJ Korea awarded the ASSITEJ Theatre Award to those who have contributed to Children’s Theatre and the Best Actor Award to outstanding actors.
Dr. Sookhee Kim, President of ASSITEJ Korea said, “Thanks to artists who strive to make contributions, society is increasingly acknowledging the importance of theatre for children. ASSITEJ Korea will continue to do its best to broaden the opportunities for theatres that do great works domestically and internationally.”
