Small Size: A Global, Advocacy-Focused Research Seminar

You are warmly invited to a workshop related to the pilot study associated with the project, "Children As Agents in Early Years Theatre Practice."


The workshop is linked to a pilot project run by ASSITEJ International's 'Building Collective Resilience' Project. 


As part of it, we will try to summarise a year and a half of pilot research conducted with the international arts community and explore the theme of agency among the youngest audiences. 


The workshop will be led by artists and researchers from Mexico, Sweden, and Poland.
