In October 2020 as a response to field-wide reckoning with racial injustice and inequities in the industry compounded by the COVID crisis, the ReImagine: New Plays in TYA program was launched. Aiming to support the development and visibility of new works for young audiences by BIPOC playwrights in an artist-centered process, the ReImagine Advisory Council selected an inaugural cohort of eight grantee playwrights and matched them with host theatres for workshops. Through three webinar sessions and a showcase of videos from the workshops, the REIMAGINE TYA series will offer insight into the first year of the program and provide space to collectively dream and discuss the future of new TYA development.
