like-minded individuals overseas and forge memorable friendships to further the scene that is Arts for Young Audiences.

                          Access to participate in The Artground's GroundBreakers programme as a trial session observer

GroundBreakers is a year-long Artist Incubation Programme that invites artmakers to conceptualize, devise, test and design experiences for young audiences. 
Trial sessions are an essential part of this process, as you get to observe the work, and feedback and responses from audiences at each stage of the work. 

Upcoming ASSITEJ SG membership events

We are planning a series of networking sessions with local artists throughout the year to develop a stronger community of artists for the A4YA sector. 
Where possible, we will organise sessions with visiting artists from the region and/or internationally. 
We also hope to seek funding opportunities for our members to attend the events that ASSITEJ International organises. 

These are some of the events that are in the works for 2024.
