Jump to comments
This five-day summer school is designed for practicing artists, teachers or facilitators with an interest in developing their own practice and understanding of different drama contexts. Students should be aged 17+ and have some previous experience of drama or arts education projects.
By the end of the course students should have:
- Examined the role of drama facilitator in a variety of contexts
- Explored practical exercises that support creativity in key contemporary contexts
- Developed confidence in and understanding of their own facilitation style and practice
- Engaged with reflective practice for the benefit for their participants as well as their own professional development
Students will engage in a practical and theoretical exploration of contemporary drama facilitation. The course will examine this role within each individual, the groups they work with and the wider cultural and educational landscape.
During the week students will investigate the use of arts as a tool for learning, social engagement and creative expression. They will also explore facilitation that leads more directly towards creating new performance or production.
Throughout the course of the week tutors will introduce a variety of models that touch upon ways to plan and structure work. There will also be several opportunities to engage with practical exercises and approaches for delivery. Students will be asked to consider how their current practice could translate into a variety of contexts in line with their own professional development.
Students will be expected to reflect individually on the activities and strategies explored. A key element of the course is establishing an ecology of reflective practice within the group that will allow each student to challenge their own working processes.
By the end of the course each student will have established new ideas and pathways for their professional development. They will also have access to a new network of practitioners that they can continue to reflect with as they continue to apply their learning.
