11 March 2016: Youth-led Community Projects Using Drama – How To Make It Work?
After the success of two popular forums, ‘Drama for Special Needs’ and ‘Competition in Arts Education – Good or Bad?’, SDEA brings you another forum on Youth-led Community Projects using Drama. We pose youths, educators and NGOs the age-old question, How To Make It Work?
So you have a love for drama and are thinking about using that special talent in meaningful ways. Maybe your drama club wants to give back to the community this semester and you’re leading the pack? What can you do that makes a real difference? How do you start?
Join us at the forum where these questions and more will be posed to youths who have led ethical projects that brought about change for the better in communities they touch. Also, find out things that supervising teachers and NGOs wish you knew before making plans that may affect already fragile communities.
- Students from Drama Clubs and Service Welfare Clubs, NUS Theatre Studies, LASALLE, NAFA, SOTA, Singapore Polytechnic DADP
- Teachers from local schools and international schools
- NGOs looking to work with youths through drama
Come and join us!
Connections is SDEA’s platform to exchange knowledge, build skills, share best practices and have conversations about the arts in an educational context. In this edition of Connections, we look at the how schools and youth leaders can engage with communities meaningfully through drama.
