The publications strand of the YPPT project has risen directly out of the recommendations from the Paving the way mapping report and the Airborne report on youth circus and contributes to our aim to raise the profile and status of the work of youth and participatory theatre.

Paving the way identified the need for more scripts of quality for young people to perform and subsequently led to a new anthology, created in partnership with Methuen Drama, and launched at GET IN..! International Theatre forum in July 2008.

In a similar way recommendations from the Airborne report highlighted a need for a directory of youth circus provision to be made available. Working with Rhinegold we now have a new Youth Arts section in the British Performing Arts Yearbook 2008/09, which also includes listings for youth and participatory theatre organisations and others. We hope this section will continue to expand and develop. 

Finally, we have also been able to support other publications which serve to promote and profile work of excellence in this sector.
