The Artistic Gathering and World Festival of Theatre for Young Audiences is awarded by an international competitive process through ASSITEJ at its World Congress. A joint by the national organising bodies of Ireland and UK secured it for the city of Birmingham in 2016. Ali was one of a small group of internationally recognised programmers involved in the development of an artistic policy for the festival programme and the appraisal of an open process of artistic submissions, selecting works to be performed at the event in July 2016. A parallel symposium took place.
