On March 20th 2019, we celebrated the World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People. All around the global ASSITEJ network, there were events and happenings in honour of the World Day.
Through the commitment of our national centres, individual members, companies, arts organisations, academics, teachers, artists, practitioners and others interested in theatre for young audiences, we were able to celebrate the World Day and ‘make the case’ for children’s entitlement to theatre and the arts. Thank you for marking March 20th as an extraordinary day in our calendars each year!
Below you will find a snapshot of some of the activities that took place.
