The 2019 LTC Convening at the 2019 TYA Sin Fronteras Festival gathered artists, scholars, and educators from across the Americas to experience theatre with young people and consider the needs and incredible capacities of Latinx audiences of the future on 24-26 January 2019. The Festival featured productions of five TYA plays from the USA and Latin America. The Convening brought 150 adult participants from across the Americas to experience these five shows with young people in the audience, and learn more about TYA through workshops, panels, discussions, and artmaking events.
