“GE hires a lot of engineers. We want young people who can do more than add up a string of numbers and write a coherent sentence. They must be able to solve problems, communicate ideas and be sensitive to the world around them. Participation in the arts is one of the best ways to develop these abilities.”
– Clifford V. Smith, President of the General Electric Foundation
The advantages of integrating the arts into education, are many. Drama, specifically, has long since been known to aid in the development of life skills in young adults. Our aim with the Young People’s Theatre Programme is to expose young people to the benefits of drama, and facilitate its understanding and appreciation, either directly or indirectly, thereby also expanding its reach.
If you work in the intersection of theatre and education, and passionately believe that theatre exponentially adds to a child’s growth and well being: we’re looking for you. Come, grow with us!
