The bOing! Debate hosted by ART(Y)31
ART(Y)31 present The bOing! Debate hosted by ART(Y)31
As theatre professionals and advocates, we know why it’s important for children to see live theatre and performance. But what happens when we ask children themselves?
Do they think it’s important? Is it relevant to them? What would they like to see being created and programmed on UK stages? It has been nationally recognised that young theatre audiences begin to decline after the age of 8. We need to ensure the conversation is joined up between artists and programmers and the young audience they are trying to engage.
Join young people from ART(Y)31, Gulbenkian’s youth leadership programme for 8-12 year olds, in a conversation with bOing festival artists creating work for this age group.
Chaired by Liz Moran (Director of Arts and Culture, University of Kent). Joined on the panel by Bodil Alling (Teatret Gruppe 38), Efren Pamilican Jr and young people from ART(Y)31.
