We are go for Learning and Engagement Programme Launch…

Grab your diaries folks, because YTAS’ exciting 2020-21 Learning and Engagement programme is here, in all its glory! 

We’re excited to announce our latest suite of training events, workshops, check-ins, swap shops and creative conversations, all designed to inspire, challenge and enhance your practice. 

In this weird and (sometimes) wonderful COVID world, we have pulled together a series of activities to help you “build back better” and take the opportunity to reimagine what youth theatre can be in your corner of the country. Our YT Essentials Online programme has an exciting array of fundamental building blocks as well as some opportunities to enhance and broaden your horizons by engaging in climate awareness and social justice discussions. The first few of these sessions are now available to be booked on our Eventbrite page

We may not (yet) be able to meet in person for training, but we’re ensuring there is plenty of space in the programme for discussion, sharing and debating ideas, and offering advice and experience. Our new digital Engagement Programme is a series of swap shops and creative conversations, hosted by YTAS but featuring some special guests from across the sector. Booking for these sessions will open soon.
