Join The New Victory Theater and AATE for a 3-day hands-on symposium, in New York City, that will explore the creation of new theater for kids and family audiences. Through work-in-progress performances, hands-on workshops, panel discussions and breakout dialogues, participants will investigate new work development in TYA (Theater for Young Audiences) from the perspective of the artist, the educator and the theatrical organization. Working with artists from the The New Victory LabWorks Program, an artist residency initiative that supports the development of original high-quality work for kids and families, participants will gain insight into how new theater for kids and families is currently developed and play a role in imagining the future of the field, as well as gain skills and ideas for fostering and supporting newwork in their own community.

Our online workshop history:

In 2012, AATE launched a line of online programming aiming to provide professional development opportunities to theater educators through interactive sessions with experts in the field. Workshops are accessible via the Internet and can be attended synchronously or asynchronously. CEUs are offered for all workshops; these can be used for re-certification or credit. Certificates of attendance are provided following the completion of the workshop to certify these hours. Previous workshops include "Teaching Drama Online" and "Dramatizing the Content: Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre," both led by Dr. Rosalind Flynn.
