Drama Now! Conference Follow Up
This event is specially for all those who attended London Drama's non-residential two day Conference: Drama Now! ~ and the Way Ahead on Thursday 12th April and Friday 13th April 2012 at Goldsmiths College, New Cross in partnership with Goldsmiths Centre for Arts and Learning (CAL). It is an opportunity to continue the active exchange of ideas and methods between you as practitioners which you reported was a key element of the Workshop Conference.
However, if you did not attend but would like to hear how everyone got on then you are very welcome to attend too.
Our aim at the Conference was to bring together a diverse range of Drama, Theatre and Performing Arts teachers and practitioners, who are currently involved in the field of education, from London and beyond in order to enable links and put you in touch with one another to share current projects and practice.
We did this successfully with a broad range of practical drama experiences from theatre companies, from classroom teachers sharing their work and the involvement of young people in the workshops and in performance.
This free follow up event will provide you with an opportunity to share developments that have happened for you since the Conference whether in the form of a practical sharing, a discussion, a reflection on your experience at the Conference or any other kind of input. It is a way of keeping in touch with one another, re-enjoying the experience we all shared and to maximise the inputs and outputs relating to it.
Any excuse for a Drama get-together, in fact!
As it is a free event it will not add to basket but book by simply emailing us at email@example.com.
See you there!
Date and time: Saturday 7th July; 10am-1pm
Venue: Goldsmiths College
