In loving memory of Adèle Jeffreys
Adèle’s family, friends and colleagues are committed to delivering her vision to ensure young Australians have access to transformational theatre experiences that entertain, inspire, help them learn, and most importantly empower them to have a strong voice to tell their own stories.
In her eight years as ATYP’s Learning Manager, Adèle championed drama education nationally, enabling the company to reach to thousands of primary and secondary school students annually. Under her leadership, Adèle initiated the live-streaming program that gives thousands of students in regional schools access to our productions online for free every year. This is one of many learning programs that will often be a young person’s first exposure to theatre.
To help amplify the voices of young people through drama education, we have created The Adèle Jeffreys Memorial Fund. This fund will provide direct support to the ATYP Learning programs Adèle championed that will continue through the magic of theatre and storytelling, to give young people a voice. ATYP Learning also helps upskill teachers to integrate drama processes in the teaching of other subjects. Adèle’s legacy will continue through this fund, which is supported by ATYP and her colleagues.
On behalf of Adèle’s family, we thank you for any support you are willing to provide.
