How do we choose to change?
By Sue Giles (Australia), Vice President of ASSITEJ

ASSITEJ believes that much more needs to be done to meet all countries’ obligations with respect to Articles 13 and 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is especially true in the light of the current pandemic, and the urgent need for equal opportunities for every child to live in a sustainable and healthy world. Children and young people have a right to access and participate in the arts, even and especially in times of crisis.

From the ASSITEJ Manifesto
 

How do we choose to change?

In my country we are in various stages of activity - some still locked down, masked and under curfew, and some leading close to normal lives. We have invisible barriers between each of our states and territories along our border lines as we restrict travel - walls between us that have become friction points as never before. But as TYA and Youth Arts practitioners we are much more connected; hearing more diverse voices than before the pandemic; seeking knowledge; experimenting with different forms and learning from each other; discovering the cracks and warps in our systems - the lack of access for many and the increase in access for others; shaking up the way we operate and think about what we do; and trying in as many ways as possible to meaningfully reach the children and young people in our communities.

Each of our contexts that we offer the world of TYA in this time are vital in their difference. Our connection and collaboration with others leads us into strength and new paths - especially when within our own countries we may be filled with despair.

This is a time to be open and receptive, aware of what we don’t know as well as bringing what we do know to the discussion. Our specific cultural and societal contexts and practice are important to understand so that the global picture can be as full and inclusive as possible. The long distance connection we have all been practicing over the last months have given us great opportunities to meet new people and hear new voices.

It’s also an important moment to focus deliberately and clearly on what really matters. How do we choose to change?

One of the major projects during this time has been collective work around an ASSITEJ manifesto - adapted from a document generously offered by Action for Children’s Arts, www.childrensarts.org.uk. The process of adapting this document through the ‘coffee sessions’ has been a powerful example of how links between our members have grown over this year since the beginning of COVID-19. Our enforced online focus has resulted in increased access and inclusion, enabled a greater diversity of voices and allowed us to have nimble discussions that result in exchange of experience, support for action and collaboration. During this hard time we’ve learned so much that we can hold onto, even as we look with hope towards a world where encounters in real life are possible.

The manifesto is ready for launching. This document is a tool we can all use in different ways - according to our different situations and relationships with systems and government in our different countries. It provides a clear and definitive focus for our advocacy and adaptable pathways towards action. The members who have contributed have offered inventive and creative ways to make this manifesto visible across different sectors. The development of this manifesto has been a collaborative effort and it compliments and underpins the specific action plans and manifestos we create each time we gather. It has been forged in response to this moment in history - when so many of our members had the same cry - “what about the children?”

ASSITEJ Manifesto
 
 

 As the Covid-19 crisis was raging, hundreds of professionals in performing arts across the globe collaborated through the Coffee Sessions of ASSITEJ. They shared their realities, expressed their points of view and their emergencies. The ASSITEJ Manifesto is the fruit of all this work. We wish it to be a tool, and, through a coordinated international campaign, a mighty lever for recognition and support to arts addressed to children and young people, and for those who produce it. We encourage you to circulate it, to share and explain it to the public, share it through social media, and confront cultural decision-makers with its content. 

More than ever, taking action in favor of an equal and equitable access to arts and culture is an indispensable requirement, as we want our children live in a sustainable and healthy world.

The Manifesto is available in 9 languages.

ASSITEJ International

 

 

Europe’s theatre sector now has a strategic platform for exchange & policymaking.

 

For the first time, 150 theatre and performing arts representatives and policy makers will be invited to participate in the European Theatre Forum, creating a vital representation for the entire sector, within and outside Europe. The meeting is organised in the frame of the German EU Council Presidency and in cooperation with the German Minister of State for Culture and the Media and the European Commission. 

The Forum is an international platform for vision, discourse, exchange, networking and policymaking. Its goal is to strategically strengthen Europe’s vibrant theatre sector, to make it visible in times when it has been endangered, to an unprecedented degree, as a consequence of the Covid-19 lockdown.

Thanks to the Zoom exchanges within the Chain Reaction meetings, a crazy idea came across SEGNI’s crew mind: planning a journey dedicated to international professionals to enlighten the variety of the Italian territories and their productions.

Why? Because we believe it is more sustainable for the planet, the economy and the networking opportunities.

SEGNI’s crew strongly believes in sharing and cooperation.
A GRAND TOUR in Italy aims to give you the chance to discover new theatres, festivals and artists, limiting the environmental impact and allowing new relationships.

Remembering Sir Ken Robinson
 

“Kids will take a chance. If they don't know, they'll have a go. They're not frightened of being wrong. I don't mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative. What we do know is, if you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original... ”

Saddened at the death of world Cultural Champion, Professor Sir Ken Robinson, we remember his wisdom and wit, at a time when we all need courage to pursue what we believe in. Take a moment to listen to his very entertaining TED talks.
