2013 – What a Year!

We’re a little over halfway through the year and WLPG has already produced two programs on two continents – in Cleveland, USA at TYA/USA’s One Theatre World conference, and in Linz, Austria at the ASSITEJ International Meeting hosted by ASSITEJ/Austria and the Schäxpir Festival. Not only that, there’s an excitement in international Theatre for Young Audiences right now, with new initiatives and great networking opportunities rolled out by ASSITEJ and its National Centres and Artistic Networks. Many thanks to all WLPG members who have made our 2013 Sparks and Shorts programs such a success!
