A New Youth Theatre for Westmeath!
About the Workshop

Youth Theatre Ireland, the national development organisation for youth theatre, with local agencies Westmeath County Council Arts Office and Longford
Westmeath ETB, is seeking to engage with relevant Westmeath-based organisations groups and individuals to support the development of a new youth theatre for young people in Westmeath.

With funding from the Creative Ireland programme under Action 7 of the Creative Youth Strategy we are seeking to support the people and services of Westmeath to establish a youth theatre through youth consultation; provision of guidance and training in youth theatre management; accredited training for local drama facilitators and some financial support to run the youth theatre in its first years of operation.
