March 20’s World Day of Theatre for Young Audiences is a yearly campaign by ASSITEJ International, promoted and celebrated through the message „Take a child to the theatre, today“.
This focus enables national centres, individual members, companies, arts organisations, academics, teachers, artists, practitioners and others interested in theatre for young audiences to connect with the idea of world day and ‘make the case’ for children’s entitlement to theatre and the arts.
Yoshi Oida (actor, director, and writer) and Yvette Hardie (president of ASSITEJ) are the authors of this year’s messages.
