To be or not to be: Drama in the curriculum

A special event at Shakespeare’s Globe
*exclusively for NISDA members*

Time: 4pm-8.30pm.

Join us for this free event as we gather representative voices from government, education and the creative industries to discuss the role and future of drama in the curriculum. The evening will be held in the jewel-like and intimate Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Sessions include a key note speech from a leading member of parliament, a panel presentation and a Q&A. It will end with a candle-lit post-conference lecture by Dr Will Tosh, Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Globe Education, on candlelight and playing conditions in the indoor Jacobean playhouses, followed by a drinks reception to which all are welcome.

"As drama and theatre teachers, opportunities to engage with the national debate on the place of our subject within schools are cherished," says Phil Tattersall-King, chair of NISDA. "This education conference hosted in one of the country’s foremost venues will bring such debate into the public eye.

"This is a wonderful forum for our voices to be heard, to allow us to question people who can influence decisions and allow us to connect as drama and theatre teachers to advance debate about the importance of our subject within schools and within the wider arts community. Your presence will be greatly appreciated at this significant event.”
