Friday, Nov 20th & Saturday, Nov 21st
Join Youth Theatre Ireland to celebrate 40 years of youth theatre practice and explore the resilience of the youth theatre community in this extraordinary year.
In partnership with University College Cork, Youth Theatre Ireland will host a 2-day event to mark the organisation’s 40th birthday during which we will explore the evolution of the national development organisation for youth theatre and the youth theatre sector’s creative work with young people over the past four decades and beyond. Participants will have the opportunity to choose from a range of online workshops and thematic sessions, and will be invited to join the virtual audience for ARTiculate and Playshare 2020 to celebrate 40 years of writing for youth theatre.
Don’t miss one of the Youth Theatre calendar highlights of 2020!
