ASSITEJ SA aims to promote and foster theatre for children and young people, to raise standards within the industry, to increase access and awareness, to lobby where necessary and to build relationships within the sector locally, nationally, across the continent and globally.
ASSITEJ South Africa is a registered NPO and Section 18A, which operates as a networking platform for people working with or interested in theatre for children and young people.
It is the registered national centre of ASSITEJ (the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People, which works in around 100 countries across the world) and is a member of ACYTA (African Children and Youth Theatre Arena), which brings together 17 African countries with ASSITEJ centres.
Members include: individuals such as actors, musicians, dancers, directors, choreographers, theatre educators, stage designers, dramatists, critics, cultural journalists, researchers and cultural officers, as well as organisations, such as theatre companies, NGOs, institutions, amateur drama groups, societies, schools, crèches, and other networks.
ASSITEJ South Africa works to promote international awareness of South African theatre for children and young people, through networking, organising exchanges, touring performances, and by facilitating contacts. Members are given access to a global network of information about festivals, performances, courses and seminars all over the world, with the potential to participate in these activities.
Our main aim is to facilitate the development of theatre for children and young people at the highest artistic level, and to ensure that children and young people everywhere in our country have access to theatre.
