Making a difference through the arts.
Since 1963, Australian Theatre for Young People (atyp) has become Australia’s leading youth theatre company.
atyp is a Sydney-based theatre company exclusively devoted to young people.
We are driven by the idea that the arts can inspire creative, courageous and confident young people wherever they are and whatever they want to be. We believe that the arts have the power to transform lives, enrich communities and ultimately impact upon the future of our nation. Our work is motivated by the need to improve access for all young Australians to share their stories and participate in the arts regardless of economic or geographical barriers.
Our Vision is to be the leading Australian youth theatre company, inspiring and nurturing imagination, confidence and creativity in young people across the country.
At the heart of our company lies collaboration between professional artists and young people. For over 40 years atyp has forged pathways for young people to learn and create alongside the best national and international theatre artists, reaching over 25,000 young Australians each year through a diverse program of workshops and productions.
Working together we create inspiring theatre and provide a space for young people to celebrate their creativity and put their ideas centre stage! Above all, atyp inspires young people to make great theatre.
