UNITY: Exploring diversity and inclusion in drama education
Unity - the state of being united or joined together as a whole. In 2019 we ask our presenters and delegates to contemplate how we celebrate and teach for diversity and inclusion in our drama classrooms to develop a sense of unity for our students.
We invite you to join us on Wurundjeri land at the Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne, Queensberry Street, Parkville, Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December, 2019 to deeply consider what diversity and inclusion are in drama, how we create diverse and inclusive drama classrooms, how we can develop rich drama content and learning experiences for the broadest range of students possible, and what allows us to feel unified as drama education professionals.
THEMES / THREADS
Unity - How does drama practice and professional learning in drama and theatre education bring the profession together?
Diversity - Who are our students? How do they learn in drama? How does the curriculum address diversity? How does industry practice address diversity in drama education?
Inclusion - Who is included, how are they included? What content, resources and practices enable this?
