ASSITEJ and WLPG in Cameroon - the Shaping Stories workshops

A great and promising first workshop called “Shaping Stories” has taken place in November 2016, in the context of FATEJ (African Theatre Festival for Children and Youth), as one of the first two regional workshops created by ASSITEJ International, with the support of WLPG. It has launched the development of a new TYA playwriting network gathering professionals from across Africa.


This workshop, about all the ways of writing for the stage when addressing young audiences, was organized by Scènes d’enfance - ASSITEJ France. The workshop was devised by Pascale Grillandini, Karin Serres and Gustave Akakpo and shared with 15 TYA professionals from Cameroon.


Thanks to the generosity of the publishers Editions Théâtrales, Lansman Editeur, l’Ecole des Loisirs, Espaces 34 and Actes Sud, every participating company has gone back home with a good amount of French speaking theatre books, as a first shelf of their own TYA library. 


The next meeting of the group, broadened with more African playwrights, will take place in South Africa in May 2017, in the context of the Cape Town ASSITEJ World Congress.
