YOUTH ADVOCATES THROUGH THEATER ARTS is a youth theatre organization from Dumaguete, Philippines. Formed after a theatre workshop in November of 2005 facilitated by PETA artist-teachers Dessa Quesada Palm and Jeff Hernandez, it aims to raise people’s awareness on various issues, especially children and young people’s rights, through theatre. YATTA believes in PAGASA, the kind of hope that emerges from young people moving from being the “object” of history, to being the “subject” of history, who acts and engages in shaping what is to be.
