Arts Thursday 22 March 2018
Sue Giles interviewed by Maisy Stapleton
If you’ve ever wanted to involve children in theatre, either as audience, or as participants, then listen to a fascinating discussion with Sue Giles.
Sue is the Artistic Director and CEO of Melbourne’s Polyglot Theatre and Vice-President of ASSITEJ, the international association of theatre for young audiences
Sue is the author of the most recent Platform Paper, published by Currency House.
Young People and the Arts: an agenda for change is both a perceptive analysis of theatre forms available to young people, as well as a passionate plea to recognise the value of young audiences and be responsive to their needs.
Platform paper no 54 is available from Currency House.
