The Long Term Impact of Youth Theatre Participation

Youth Theatre Arts Scotland teamed up with the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities to carry out a research project into the long-term impacts of participation in youth theatre. Last week, they published a full report and eight case studies, which help to prove the life-changing impact of youth theatre on participants’ professional and personal lives.

The report evidences a positive impact on participants’confidence, emotional intelligence, resilience, teamwork and leadership skills, emotional wellbeing, and broadened horizons. The findings are being communicated to key policymakers, funders, and network members, and YTAS hopes to use them to shape future planning and delivery in the youth theatre sector.
