Mission Statement of Graffiti Theatre Company
The primary purpose of Graffiti Theatre Company is to provide a high quality educational theatre/drama experience to young people. To this end, we engage with many specialist artists in a creative process which honours the creativity of the whole team. We seek to place at the heart of each programme of work an innovative piece of theatre which is specifically designed to mediate the experience between the art work and its particular audience. All Graffiti’s work – central educational theatre, youth theatre and outreach drama – is informed by a philosophy which validates the aesthetic, personal and social experience of young people.
1. To produce a range of high quality educational theatre work in English & Irish and to sustain the standards developed over 31 years;
