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.
Due to the success of the original event, ASSITEJ SA has launched Cradle of Creativity as a new international TYA festival and conference to take place for the first time in August 2019 in Cape Town. Thereafter it will rotate every two years to a different part of South Africa.
