A Reminder For Ourselves, Of The Way We Can Be Together

Published on 25 April 2024

ASSITEJ International, as a community, must be able to offer a safe space for artists without discrimination, as we say in our constitution.

In our World Congress we offer a space for all who come in the name of peace and connection, and who are working to create and share theatre and performance for a young audience. This safe space must be named, and emphasised, in our behaviour to each other and as visitors in another country. We claim this safe space as a positive action towards human empathy and connection – valuing what is similar between us. We must be able to positively act towards unity, despite the world. In this lies our hope and the hope of the children and young people we serve.
