Event description

Description

We look forward to bringing together our community at our 2019 State Conference!

Dandjoo is the Noongar word for together / unite. Together, we are stronger. When we unite in our practice, in our classrooms and in culture, we can achieve wonderous things.

This year, we invite presenters and delegates to explore how we learn, play and walk together with one another, our students, and others; how we foster a sense of ‘togetherness’ in our drama classrooms; how drama experiences have the power to unite; and how we as drama education professionals come together to strengthen and grow our practice.

The conference will explore the main theme through three sub-themes:

DANDJOO KOORLINY (Walking Together)

How do you facilitate co-construction of meaning with your students, as opposed to leading/directing learning? How do we honour and effectively embed Indigenous and other perspectives into our drama classrooms? What content, resources and practices are available that enable us to engage with these perspectives in meaningful ways?

DANDJOO KAADATJINY (Learning Together)

How does drama foster collaborative learning? What is the power of the ensemble for learning? How does learning together, as drama professionals, enhance our practice and well-being

DANDJOO WARNINY (Playing Together)

How does drama act as a vehicle for play in learning? What does play look like in your drama practice? How can/do we encourage more collaborative, purposeful play in our classrooms?


The Conference will offer educators from all backgrounds and experiences - including those delivering a Drama curriculum for the first time - an opportunity to network, gather and share knowledge, participate in quality professional learning and access practical support from leaders in the field. A dynamic program of events will include practical workshops, papers, panels and opportunities to connect with cultural perspectives.

The conference fee includes a keynote presentation, performance, selected workshops, morning and afternoon tea, lunch, and a memento item.

Presentation Format
All workshops and paper presentations will take place in classrooms, performance and outdoor spaces at Edith Cowan University's Mount Lawley Campus. We have encouraged presenters to consider creative and engaging ways of presenting their work and involving delegates in workshops.
