***2-day Youth Theatre Symposium***

On 22 and 23 November, Youth Theatre Ireland, in collaboration with University College Cork and Theatre NI, will host a Symposium celebrating Youth Theatre practice. This 2-day event will combine our annual Symposium programme with our annual Playshare celebration. We hope you'll join us at University College Cork for this exciting opportunity that will include presentations and workshops on Youth Theatre Practice and networking opportunities for practitioners, and that will bring together a number of Youth Theatre Ireland projects including the launch of CentreStage+20, Playshare 2019, and our annual Youth Theatre Ireland Magazine. It will definitely be one of the highlights of the Youth Theatre calendar and not to be missed. Further details on the Youth Theatre Symposium will be announced in September.
