Wednesday 20 March is World Theatre Day for Children and Youth; ahead of this occasion, the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People (ASSITEJ) Luxembourg highlighted its members’ events.

These events will take place from Thursday 14 to Saturday 23 March 2024. Eight events dedicated to young audiences will be organised by, among others, the CAPE Ettelbruck, the Cube 521, the Escher Theater, neimënster, the Rotondes and the Trifolion Echternach.

As part of World Theater Day for Young Audiences, ASSITEJ Luxembourg launched a call for participation on 10 March for the third consecutive year, running until 20 March 2024, in which all school classes can participate. On 22 March, eighteen classes will be drawn and will participate in creative workshops led by ASSITEJ members, which will take place in schools between 6 and 17 May 2024. A video with Luxembourg’s Minister for Culture, Eric Thill, interviewed by a class from the Bous primary school, will be broadcast on social networks on 20 March 2024.

ASSITEJ Luxembourg aims to bring people together, so that they can share their knowledge and practices in the field of performing arts for a young audience, in order to deepen understanding, develop practices, create new opportunities and strengthen the entire sector. The association counts among its 56 members cultural houses and places, but also independent artists, companies, teachers and amateur theatre clubs.

ASSITEJ noted it is dedicated to the artistic, cultural and educational rights of children and young people and promotes them on behalf of all children around the world, without distinction of nationality, cultural identity, ability or disability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion. ASSITEJ members are national centres, professional networks and individuals from more than 100 countries around the world.
