International Schools Theatre Association

We passionately believe in education through theatre, helping children and young people create new worlds and stimulating their imaginations.

The International Schools Theatre Association began back in 1978 with just one high school festival in Europe; we now arrange 40 arts events and festivals every year, locally and globally, and we’re growing all the time.

We bring together young people, artists and teachers from all corners of the world to experience and learn about theatre, culture and one another.

We’re a dynamic and forward-thinking international theatre educator with a focus on innovative practice.

Our vision is to ultimately be an international theatre-based learning hub, developing culturally aware students and teachers who value diversity, collaboration and friendship.
