Description

Angela Tillges (Neighborhood Arts Program Director, Redmoon Theatre, Chicago) traveled to London, England to observe Great Britain’s National Youth Theatre and attend the Worlds Together Conference, a collaboration between the Tate Modern, the British Museum, the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. She explored the impact of youth-created cultural events on young people’s civic and cultural participation, with particular focus on the National Youth Theatre “as a model system for creating large-scale public performance with youth.”
