Drama Theatre and Young People - We endorse the manifesto

What’s happening next? Can I or my organisation help?

The umbrella organisations and national associations will come together for the first time in September 2011 to share evidence on the impact our work has on young people’s lives and on society as a whole.

We need to build a body of both quantitative and qualitative evidence from case studies, personal stories and statistical data in order to make it difficult for policy-makers and statutory funders to ignore the unique contribution that drama and theatre, within the context of access to a broad spectrum of cultural activity, and the impact it makes to young people’s lives. UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who submitted evidence!
