Greenwich University in London was an amazing place to be for Drama teachers July 4 -7, 2013. I was thrilled to attend the National Drama conference in the UK. The theme, Heathcote Reconsidered, was an incredible opportunity to learn from, share with and explore drama in education ideas in process drama, mantle of the expert, rolling role and more as influenced and on by the foundational work of drama matriarch, Dorothy Heathcote. National Drama is one of two UK Drama subject associations. Greenwich University is a world heritage site and there were educators from around the world itself there to share ideas on Drama in Education.
On Friday November 30, be a part of of an early night discussion that examines the past, present and future of local Hip-Hop.
This year’s FOOT interrogates the complex relationships between Theatre and Learning in both theory and practice. The conference will comprise three broad areas of exploration: learning theatre, learning through theatre and theatre plus learning. Each stream will feature scholarly panels, performances, workshops and a roundtable discussion. With presenters joining us from six different countries, this year’s festival promises a unique international forum for researchers, artists, students, teachers and parents to meet and explore theatre in education, theatre for social change, theatre training and theatre for young audiences (TYA), among many others.
We are especially excited to announce our international keynote panel: from the UK, Professor Helen Nicholson (Royal Holloway University, author of the seminal work Applied Drama: The Gift of Theatre); from Canada, Professor
Playwrights will learn classroom strategies (exercises, activities, games) that can be incorporated in classroom workshops, and gain information on how to market their work for schools and teachers. David S. Craig will provide insight on writing scripts for classroom use.

Seventeen students from Earl Haig Secondary School along with Jan Kish and teacher Kirk Davis have collectively created a new play entitled "The Dreamcatchers" which will be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2011. The play was inspired by the 1995 incident at Ipperwash and the G20 riots last year in Toronto - but is entirely fictional. This tragedy explores politics, spirituality and identity through chorus, dance, meta-theatrics and drama. For more information, please visit: http://www.dreamcatcherstheplay.ca
