The ASSITEJ SA Board welcomes Russel Hlongwane. Hlongwane is based in Durban and currently sits on the Arterial Network SA executive committee and is the Vice-Chairperson of the KZNSA Gallery. We are delighted to have him join the board as a representative of KZN.

We are grateful to Gisele Turner who has spent several years on the board and has built support for the association in KZN with great energy and dedication, and we wish her a fond adieu, but not goodbye!

Promoting and Advocating

ASSITEJ SA Subscription


If you would like to support ASSITEJ SA  and would like to make a small contribution, we invite you to make payments via debit order.

Payments will go toward the overall running costs of ASSITEJ SA and is an ASSITEJ SA initiative to diversify its fundraising to manage the fluctuating nature of funding grants. 

With a small, but cost-effective and efficient team, ASSITEJ SA in the 2015-2016 financial year supported 97 productions for young audiences nationally, out of the approximately 216 productions programmed by theatres.

Our creative arts education programme Kickstarter is currently being reviewed by Wits University as the subject of a Master's research programme and we are the hosts of the international gathering of theatre for young audiences, the 19th ASSITEJ World Congress and International Theatre Festival, which is taking place in Africa for the very first time in over 50 years of ASSITEJ International.

In the 9 year history of ASSITEJ SA, it has sometimes operated with annual incomes of over R8 million and sometimes operated with much MUCH smaller funding grants where the work was able to continue with the generous support from the many partners ASSITEJ SA has built up over time.  To help us into our 10th year and onwards, we invite you to make a tangible commitment this December:
