Over the next three years YTAS will carry out focussed regional development activity to address gaps in the youth theatre network by establishing new (and strengthening existing) regional, creative and education partnerships.
We recently submitted the Year 2 report for this project. Here are the headline stats to date:
Worked in 12 targeted regions: Angus, Argyll and Bute, Clackmannanshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Inverclyde, Midlothian, North Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, Scottish Borders, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire and Western Isles.
Worked directly with 66 youth theatre and community groups, 651 young people and 266 practitioners and YT leaders.
Worked indirectly with 2220 young people; engaged by practitioners YTAS trained.
Established and developed 25 regional partnerships.
Increased engagement in YTAS’s events and services from groups and young people who had never accessed our work before or had limited engagement.
