"As Covid-19 crisis was raging, hundreds of professionals of performing arts across the globe collaborated through the Coffee Sessions of ASSITEJ. They shared their realities, expressed their points of view and their emergencies. ASSITEJ Manifesto is the fruit of all this work. We wish it to be a tool, and, through a coordinated international campaign, a mighty lever for recognition and support to arts addressed to children and young people, and those who produce it. We encourage you to circulate it, to share and explain it to the public, circulate it through social media, and confront the cultural decision-makers with its content.
More than ever, taking action in favor of an equal and equitable access to arts and culture is an indispensable requirement, as we want our children live in a sustainable and healthy world."
