CYP conference, 2018
Children, Youth and Performance Conference, June 2018

Connecting Drama and Performance Research to Practice in the Lives of Young People

The 2020 Children, Youth and Performance Conference at Young People’s Theatre in Toronto will be postponed until late spring of 2021.

All conference applicants who were accepted as presenters for the 2020 conference will remain accepted presenters for the conference in 2021, if they are able to attend. More details will be announced (including the new conference dates) in late 2020.

For accepted conference applicants who are interested in listing their conference presentations on academic CVs, you may list your presentation as ‘accepted’ or ‘forthcoming’ since the conference has not been cancelled, but postponed.


    • This peer-reviewed conference is an exchange of knowledge between researchers, performers, educators, practitioners and community organizers, from across the country and abroad, putting performance research to work and examining its effects on the lives of young people. Through a range of informative and interactive sessions, participants will discuss the future applications and implications of performance work with, by, for, and about children and youth.

Questions about facilities/accessibility can be directed to Katherine Sanders, YPT Associate Director, Education, at ksanders@youngpeoplestheatre.org
