Youth Engagement at ATP
Our Youth Engagement Programming aims to deepen the theatre experience for young audiences and emerging artists through our plays, varied practical learning opportunities, and professional mentorship. These programs foster community, engage the inquisitive mind, and bring young audiences and artists together in an exchange around our work.
We believe that early exposure to theatre is essential to learning and development, and positively impacts the creativity and overall performance of the young people in our community. It is this belief that fuels our dedication to making ATP, and the contemporary live theatre we create, accessible to ALL youth – no matter their economic status, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religious beliefs, gender, disability or sexual orientation. The plays on our stage include a wide range of stories and perspectives, reflecting our community in all its diversity and are in sync with what it means to be alive right now.
Driven by an attitude of curiosity in all we do, we encourage a sense of discovery in the young people who engage with us. We delight in seeing young minds and hearts opened through the life-changing experience of theatre.
