‘Accessing Optimism for a Post-Pandemic Future’
a new theatre project with youth and professional artists
We are looking for youth aged 13-18 to participate as script advisors and design assistants for our new theatre project that explores accessing optimism for a post-pandemic future. This theme emerged from conversations with young people who shared their daily struggle to find hope and envision a future beyond secondary school.

Working with diverse professional artists in various art disciplines, youth are in the process of creating a new and original play that is set to be performed live at the Roundhouse Performance Centre April 29 – May 3, 2022. This project follows BC Public Health Covid-19 guidelines including the Vaccine Passport requirement for those over the age of 12.
Some Assembly is in its 21st year creating and producing plays that promote awareness, dialogue and positive social change regarding issues facing youth. Some Assembly is the recipient of the City of Vancouver Youth Award for outstanding contribution to the youth community; the Deryck Thomson Award for exceptional contribution to community building and wellbeing; and the Give a Damn Award for our charitable work with youth.
