NAYD changes its name to Youth Theatre Ireland
Youth Theatre Ireland is the new name for our national representative organisation (formerly National Association of Youth Drama).
"Our new name links us with the 55 youth theatres in 24 counties that are currently in our membership, and the many more that will affiliate in the coming years.
Over 37 years we have succeeded in establishing youth theatre as a leading youth arts practice that balances the value systems of theatre and youth work. Youth theatres affiliated to Youth Theatre Ireland are committed to empowering and developing young people as theatre makers and as individuals.
As we embark on a new era, we are inspired to build on this legacy and we are motivated by our vision that all young people should have the opportunity to participate in quality youth drama experiences.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our many members, colleagues and friends, for your continued support, and we invite new friends to come on board.
