PLATFORM PAPER 54

YOUNG PEOPLE AND THE ARTS: AN AGENDA FOR CHANGE
SUE GILES

4.30 – 6.30pm Friday 2 February, 2018
The Tower, The Coopers Malthouse

Expectations around theatre for young people are too prescribed today. In exposing a system in serious need of reconstruction, Giles calls for a review of the accepted attitudes, and the embrace of a different paradigm that places children and young people at the centre of change. Can we consider the child as a cultural citizen?

Sue Giles is the Artistic Director and co-CEO of Melbourne’s Polyglot Theatre. She is an advocate for Theatre for Young Audiences in Australia through a partnership with Theatre Network Australia, and internationally as Vice President of ASSITEJ International* – the global association of theatre for young audiences.
