ArtsPraxis Volume 5, Issue 2 looks to engage members of the global Educational Theatre community in an exploration of the concepts of Performance and Activism, investigating how these notions intersect, inform, and collide. Theatre and performance artists, scholars, and teachers are invited to share ideas, vocabularies, strategies, and techniques, centering on the varying definitions and practices of performance as activism. The submission deadline for Volume 5, Issue 2 is June 15, 2018.
