A message from Theatre Ontario’s Youth Advisory Committee for World Theatre Day on Monday March 27th!
We are Theatre Ontario’s Youth Advisory Committee, a group of eight people ranging from ages 16-25, who have a strong interest in the development and empowerment of youth across Ontario. Together we come from different backgrounds; geographically, culturally, and artistically. Our collective goal is to connect youth interested in theatre across Ontario and empower them to take on an active role in creating opportunities in their communities. This year we want to highlight and recognize the crucial role youth play within artistic communities. We also want to bring awareness to ourselves and the province about what is needed in communities across Ontario to help these youth voices be heard.
To kick off our year of initiatives to unite young theatre artists across the province, we invite you to join us in celebrating World Theatre Day on Monday, March 27. Print out and a post a photo of you with one of our #WorldTheatreDay cards (below) to get involved and join the conversation on Twitter at @theatreontario or on our Facebook page.
If posting on social media is not your thing, we invite you to email us the answers to these questions so we can post on your behalf. We hope to use the answers we collect on #WorldTheatreDay to begin to develop a stronger understanding of how we can support you and your community moving forward. This will be crucial in the next steps for our work as the Youth Advisory Committee.
We hope you will consider joining us on #WorldTheatreDay to kick off our year of empowering and engaging youth in arts across Ontario. Please let us know if you have any questions.
