There are more than 2018 reasons to celebrate the year that was 2018! A significant year for ATYP, we moved out of our home of the last 21 years to make way for renovations to the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct.
In addition to the move, we had A Town Named War Boy on a national tour, produced four world premiere productions and welcomed thousands of young people to our workshops, learning/education offerings, an inspiring writing program and extra special masterclasses.
You can read about how your philanthropy made this all possible for ATYP in the following brochure.
An ATYP commissioned research report has found that youth theatre has positive impacts on mental health wellbeing, reductions in anxiety and resilience building. The survey looked at seven wellbeing markers for young people, revealing that involvement in youth theatre strengthens lifelong skills including interpersonal and team work skills. It surveyed more than 1,200 ATYP participants, parents, alumni and other stakeholders.
We are proud of the research that has been found and are striving to increase the positive affect of our work in the future.
