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.

This practical drama workshop with Jonothan Neelands will explore John Steinbeck's iconic novel The Grapes of Wrath and its contemporary resonances for the troubled world that young people are experiencing.
Using material from the novel and the film and play versions as well as other historical and contemporary materials the workshop offers a model of how teaching literature of the past through drama can connect us powerfully with our world today. The workshop started life as a pre-show and post-show workshop for the current Stratford Festival production and is still evolving as a socio-historical theatrical journey into the lives, experiences and art of those living on the edge then and now.
