International Conference Theatre and Performance Design Education Network
The inaugural international conference of The Theatre & Performance Design Education Network
will bring together teachers and researchers from a range of international institutions engaged in the teaching of theatre and performance design and its affiliated fields. It will facilitate the sharing of current best practice, strategize for the future and provide a discursive forum for interrogating the efficacy of different pedagogical approaches.
The following themes, Collaboration, Digital Technologies, Space & Architecture, Interdisciplinarity, Drawing & Performance, Costume, and Scenography Unbound
, will provide critical lenses to explore key questions such as: how are we equipping theatre and performance design students with the requisite skills, knowledge and understanding to not only work in the creative industries as they are now but to shape those industries in the future?
