ASSITEJ Coffee Session

Cultural Education around the world – What is the place of Drama and Theatre?

Join the third round of conversations on 1 December 2021!

There is a concern within ASSITEJ membership that Cultural Education is being eroded. Currently many countries offer only a STEM curriculum. STEM is an abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM degrees often have an interdisciplinary, hands-on educational approach and they prepare students for a world which needs more researchers, engineers, computer scientists… How and why should we support a STEAM curriculum? – the A is forthe Arts – humanities, language arts, dance, drama, music, visual arts, design and new media.

Join us for 3 coffee sessions online entitled “Cultural Education around the world – What is the place of Drama and Theatre?”

  • Session 1 (on 20 Oct) : What is the world scene? What is the state of Primary and Secondary cultural education in your country, – What is its status? How is it perceived? Who gets it? What are the problems? Where is the hope?
  • Session 2 (on 10 Nov): How can we raise the profile of Drama and Theatre in education and access to it for all children? How can we better use the ASSITEJ manifesto? How can we include the voice of young people?
  • Session 3: (on 1 Dec) Steps towards an action plan to effect change, how to implement, what to do?

Each session will be repeated in two time zones.
