We strongly encourage national centres, individual members, companies, arts organisations, academics, teachers, artists, practitioners and others interested in theatre for young audiences to use the date March 20th and the World Day as an instrument to ‘make the case’ for children’s entitlement to theatre and the arts. Each year ASSITEJ Centres and Networks around the globe deliver activities ranging from conferences, performances, workshops and special media events connected to #takeachildtothetheatre.

Share the information about your World Day activities with us, so we are able to create a picture of what will take place around the world. Let’s make 20th of March a special day together!

In 2019, ASSITEJ WDT video has been produced by ASSITEJ Korea.
