With thanks to the contribution of some of TNA’s Members who work in the Theatre for Young Audiences or Youth Theatre sectors, TNA has joined ASSTEJ international as a National Centre.
“The National Centre is intended to be representative of the field of theatre for children and young people as it exists in that country. The focus is on creating a nationally based network of professional members… National centres are networks of members which may include organizations, institutions, associations … and persons active in theatre for children and young people and supporting organizations, institutions, associations, or persons interested in theatre for children and young people… Theatre companies or artists who work partially for children and young people, and partially in other contexts, may also be admitted. All efforts should be made to include all artists working in the field, to grow membership over time and to raise standards. National centres should prioritise the aims of ASSITEJ according to an analysis of their national needs.” From the ASSITEJ Protocol Handbook 2014.
