ASSITEJ Sector Video

TNA worked with Amelia Ducker to create an inspiring video celebrating work made with and for young people across Australia.

The video premiered at the ASSITEJ World Congress/ MIRAI Festival in March 2021, presenting Australia’s Theatre for Young Audiences and Youth Arts Sector to international delegates.

It proudly reflects the breadth of work we create and varied contexts within which we create; showcases our diversity of practice, practitioners and audiences; and highlights the unique work being made in Australia.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact: or 

We were delighted to collaborate with these young people and companies on the interview segments of the video:

Joyee and Augie, House of Muchness
Sarah, Outback Theatre for Young People
Quinn, Sensorium 
Jayda and Juliette, Yirra Yaakin
