Ambassador Testimonials

The entire program is incredibly invaluable, and the fact that we’re fortunate enough to have access to such an important, informal educational utensil, makes me feel extraordinarily proud to be an Australian teen, in the context of theatre and learning. It has inspired me to continue writing and pursue more theatrical endeavours. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone and everyone interested in theatre, English or diversity.

Miriam, Griffin Ambassador 2019

I am so grateful to have been a Griffin Ambassador for 2019. I will not forget the quality of the plays, what I learnt through the workshops and the memories I’ve created through the program.

Jessica, Griffin Ambassador 2019

The most valuable part of the program was meeting others my own age who share the same passion I do. It’s really rare to find other teens who are so invested in and passionate about the dramatic arts.

Helena, Griffin Ambassador 2017

Being a Griffin Ambassador allowed me to see Australian shows brought to life in such innovative and creative ways. I enjoyed being able to discuss the shows with my fellow Ambassadors, and also participating in eye-opening workshops with some amazing Australian theatre artists. Being a Griffin Ambassador has certainly broadened my understanding of theatre, and I have no doubt that I will use what I have learned this year in a future career in the arts.

Margaret, Griffin Ambassador 2017

What it does better than any other youth-based program, is cultivate discussions and dialogues between talented theatre artists who are successfully working in the industry, and the young people who will one day be contributing to the industry themselves.
