The SDEA Theatre Arts Conference is a playground for developing ideas, vision and aesthetic for the practice of drama in community, education or performance.

The 2017 conference theme, "Future Generations: Projecting Playful Possibilities" promises invigorating insights into practice and pedagogy behind Theatre for Young People via practical workshops, moving performances, ground-breaking research and pre-conference masterclasses by experts!

Grab this opportunity to meet the best brains and talents from around the world on the 30 June to 1 July 2017 at the Goodman Arts Centre.

Meet keynote speakers Dr Julie Dunn (Griffith University), Chong Tze Chien (The Finger Players) and Purni Morell (Unicorn Theatre), as well as other brilliant minds doing engaging work in theatre for young people.

Educators will relish our instructive workshops on using drama as a teaching tool along with the invigorating discussions of pedagogic identities and practices. Whereas artists can look forward to refreshing their skills and challenging their artmaking. As for those with specialised interest or interested in working with community-specific groups, come and see how drama can be used to provide a safe space for young people to rebuild, restore and reconcile.

Make the most out of the conference, here's how!

Start your conference experience with our Pre-Conference Masterclasses facilitated by some of the foremost experts in their respective fields of Dramaturgy, Early Childhood Education and Performances for Young Audiences. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from masters like Chong Tze Chien (Singapore), Dr Julie Dunn (Australia) and Purni Morell (UK).

You’re bound to discover new ideas and fresh perspectives on theatre-making in our sandbox of over 45 presenters from 17 countries. Noted speakers include Dr Liang Peilin (Singapore), Thila Min (Myanmar), Dr Norifumi Hida (Japan), Sisir Dutta (Bangladesh), Dalija Acin Thelander (Sweden) and organisations like the Australian Theatre for Young People (Australia).
