Kinder- und Jugendtheaterzentrum in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Germany)
Since the foundation of the Children’s and Young People’s Theatre Centre, promoting playwrights has been at the heart of its work. This involvement in supporting authors and their work is based on the fact that the artistic quality in children’s and young people’s theatre corresponds closely to the quality of its dramatic literature. With writing workshops, the Paul-Maar-Stipendium (Paul Maar Grant), the Deutscher Kindertheaterpreis (German Children’s Theatre Prize) and the Deutscher Jugendtheaterpreis (German Young People’s Theatre Prize) or the exchange with other European playwrights, the Centre has developed a range of promotional activities which is crowned every year by the Frankfurter Autorenforum für Kinder- und Jugendtheater (Frankfurt Playwrights Forum for Children’s and Young People’s Theatre).
