ASSITEJ World Day of Theatre for Children on March 20th 2016
This focus enables National Centres, individual members, companies, arts organisations, academics, teachers, artists, practitioners and others interested in theatre for young audiences to connect with the idea of World Day and ‘make the case’ for children’s entitlement to theatre and the arts.
All ASSITEJ members are invited to promote special World Day messages written every year, share the ASSITEJ film and consider additional activity – large or small. Each year ASSITEJ Centres around the globe deliver activities ranging from conferences, performances, workshops and special media events. This tool-kit aims to help you plan for World Day 2016, which happens on March 20th.
The message ‘take a child to the theatre – today’ can be promoted as a message and as a call to action, it can promote regional activity and theatre events and by linking to other information, illustrate why it is important to take a child to the theatre.
World Day is a global campaign. ASSITEJ has more than 80 National Centres as well as Networks with affiliates across 100 countries, which means there is unlimited possibility for profile, visibility and advocacy.
