Youth Theater Project
ATAI Youth Theater Project is where young people create theater pieces based on issues they pick. We use a network of international drama and applied theater teachers and practitioners to connect each group's project with a group of youth facing their own set of issues in another country. We learn and use emerging digital technologies to connect and create meaningful solutions and new perspectives as both groups are facilitated through their creative process. ATAI provides a forum for public performance and feed-back session with audiences that have an interest in hearing these voices and we help raise that interest as we create our art. As peers, parents, community members, business people and those in local government hear directly from these youth, each project is also connected to a group in another country through digital media.
