Theatre for children & young people

ASSITEJ South Africa is a national network organisation of artists, educators, organisations and institutions from all provinces.

Our Vision

South African children and young people will have access to quality, performing arts especially designed for them, contributing to a more empathic, engaged and creative society.

We build the sector of theatre for young audiences in South Africa through supporting and developing the artists, empowering education through the performing arts, creating strategies for access to the arts, and advocating for the role of the arts as an essential right of every child and young person.

Theatre4Youth

Theatre4Youth is a core programme of ASSITEJ SA, and has been funded by the National Arts Council of South Africa, the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the International Fund for Cultural Diversity of UNESCO.
