MTYP Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
MTYP aspires to be a theatre where children and youth always see themselves reflected, whether it is on our stage, in our classrooms or in any of the spaces where our artistic and administrative activities take place. Accordingly, equity, diversity and inclusion are factored into all decisions at MTYP. We welcome artistic submissions from people of all identities, ethnicities and abilities and encourage everyone to seek out employment or volunteer opportunities at MTYP when available.
