We want everyone to have a brilliant experience at our Youth Theatre. To ensure this, we abide by the values set out in the National Association of Youth Theatre’s Excellence and Inclusion Framework.
These values are:
Altruism: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Compassion: engaging with the world and each other knowing it is not always comfortable.
Cooperation: the give and take between artists and play, accepting compromise will sometimes be necessary for the benefit of the group.
Empathy: caring for others with a curiosity that constantly seeks new ways of being and creating together.
Forgiveness: allowing and recovering from potentially damaging mistakes.
Imagination: keeping ideas in the mind long enough to allow them to emerge.
Humility: being humble and accepting everyone has equal importance in the creation of ideas.
Magnanimity: the courage and generosity to give away ideas.
Patience: this is only possible over years!
Rapport: the magic language between individuals in tune with each other.
Tolerance: accommodating differences and allowing mistakes.
Trust: being respectful and honest with each other so we can experiment without fear.
Rigour: be prepared to practice and practice: with intention and commitment.
