As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on our generous community of supporters to make an impact. Since 1963, Australian Theatre for Young People has created theatre experiences to enrich the lives of young people across Australia.

Our mission is to nurture the new generation of creators, thinkers and leaders through engaging drama and writing workshops, yearly production seasons, writing programs and a youth advisory panel. Our programs benefit thousands of young people aged 4-26 years old every year.

ATYP has evolved. As for many arts organisations, the pandemic has been, and still  is, a challenging time for ATYP, with remote working, canceled and postponed productions, online learning and social distancing. Despite this, ATYP spent the last two years investing in new research and development into new online platforms, super-charging our bespoke workshops and writing programs online and continuing to provide engaging and exciting opportunities for young people.

If you would like to learn more about how you can support or get involved, please contact our team.
