A youth theatre company for everyone.

“As a woman and member of the LGBTQIA + community, I have felt very included, and motivated to connect to WAYTCo as a safe space to explore my practice and meet other artists.”

WAYTCo is committed to creating a place of safety and welcome, by:

  • Redesigning its systems and processes with attention to removing barriers to program access – for example, by offering different modalities for program application and providing multiple entry points;
  • Working with you regarding any supports you may need to participate in programs or productions. These may be supports that you require temporarily or on-goingly;
  • Embarking on an ongoing learning journey centred on encouraging awareness of unconscious bias – of how our own cultural values, knowledge, skills and attitudes are formed and affect others.


We seek to make our studio, theatre productions and programs as accessible and inclusive as possible. Should you, or someone you know, anticipate access or inclusion needs, please let us know so that we can make sure you (or someone you know) feels welcome and supported.

Cultural Safety

The WAYTCo team tries to be conscious of differing lived experience. We encourage you to provide us with guidance, should matters of cultural safety come into play.

Should you require information from us in a language other than English, please advise and we will engage Translating and Interpreting Services on 131 450. For those from the D/deaf community, or hard of hearing, we warmly encourage National Relay Service assisted calls. The service is available Mon-Fri, 8am-6pm AEST, on 1800 555 660.


WAYTCo takes youth safeguarding very seriously. In 2019 the company developed and implemented a Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy. This policy and associated procedures are reviewed every two years. You can read/ download a copy by clicking on the embedded link.​

Please contact us should you require our assistance with securing tailored supports and remember that support workers and cultural safety representatives are always welcome!
