International Schools Theatre Association.
A community of young people, teachers and artists.
“Life isn’t measured in the breaths we take, but in moments that take our breath away.”
Our world depends on confident, internationally minded, collaborative and culturally literate young people who are empowered to engage with and change the world. ISTA brings together young people, artists and teachers from different countries in different settings to experience, create and learn about theatre.
We passionately value diversity, collaboration, celebration, play, friendship and collegiality.
