Australian Theatre for Young People

ATYP Support

For 54 years Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) exists to help young people find their voice and together, inspire all Australians.

We believe that an involvement in theatre builds better people. Theatre develops confidence, creativity and community. It challenges us to reflect on and better understand ourselves and our society. Young people involved in drama activities not only develop skills and gain experiences useful for any future career, but they also become more socially engaged citizens.

ATYP specialises in integrating professional theatre practice with supportive youth theatre process. We love working with all levels of the arts industry, from the most celebrated national companies to the smallest youth theatres. Our work supports young people from their first theatre experience to their first professional production.

2017 Annual Appeal - 27/3/17 to 19/5/17

Over the next twelve months ATYP needs to replace our ailing technical equipment.  We need to raise $110,000 for new laptop computers, a replacement server, increased storage and related IT support. These tools are needed to ensure ATYP can be mobile, flexible and remain connected to the young people we work with and our supporters as we navigate the construction of our new home.

To help us reach our target ATYP has secured matching funds up to $50,000 through Creative Partnerships Australia‚Äôs Plus1 initiative. This means every dollar you donate will be doubled. To make the most of matching funds, please make your gift to ATYP Support through Give Now by 19th May 2017 to be eligible.
