The Theater Offensive
The third annual PYTA Conference was held at the Boston Center for the Arts, hosted by The Theater Offensive and the Summer Troupe of True Colors: OUT Youth Theater. For the first time, the Mukti Fund invited representatives from three new incubator programs to join the annual gathering and meet with potential mentors to learn best practices in program development and youth leadership.
