Assitej UK

ASSITEJ UK is committed to the promotion of equal access, diversity, inclusivity, quality, cross sector partnerships and internationalism.

ASSITEJ UK conducts its affairs to reflect and respect the ASSITEJ International constitution. ASSITEJ UK embraces cultural diversity and as such, is accessible to all residents of the UK.

In order to reflect the UK’s makeup and to facilitate communication, ASSITEJ UK is comprised of four regional centres. These are:

TYA England
TYA Scotland
TYA Wales

Each centre is responsible for gathering information amongst its members and sending two representatives to ASSITEJ UK’s quarterly Board meetings.

Board Members are elected for a three year term, to match the international cycle of ASSITEJ Congresses.

ASSITEJ (International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People) holds a General Assembly and a Congress every three years. An International Representative for the UK is elected by all UK members to represent the UK abroad.

For most years since the foundation of ASSITEJ in 1965, a UK citizen has served on the Executive Committee of ASSITEJ although the Committee does not currently hold a UK Representative.
