Gwaandak Theatre is dedicated to making theatre accessible to youth, including Aboriginal and other rural youth in remote northern communities, and to promoting appreciation of theatre arts and awareness of theatre careers with young audiences.
Since 2000, almost all of our productions include youth outreach components, including school matinees, artist visits in the schools, inclusion of youth participants and, since 2011, comprehensive School Study Guides for educators and students (supported by Yukon Education). These free downloadable Study Guides are a valued curriculum tool which allow for enhanced exploration of theatre as a powerful art form, and for deeper understanding and discussion of important issues raised in each play.
