Calling Young Playwrights Ages 12 to 18!

November 21, 2022

ATHENS – Much has been written about children’s rights, but mostly by adults. This time around, it’s kids who are invited to speak up by writing a play inspired by an Article in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which prohibits any kind of discrimination against children.

If you are between 12 and 18 years old, submit your play before January 31, 2023, and see it come to life through a theatrical performance!

Two plays will be chosen, by public vote on a committee-selected shortlist, to be performed by the New Greek Theater Drama School at a festival organized by the Network for Children’s Rights in October 2023!

Learn more about how to submit a play.

The program is implemented by the Network and supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) as part of its wider efforts to strengthen social inclusion for people of all ages—regardless of gender, race, or religion.
