The Odyssey is about the journey home. This enlivened keynote will take delegates on a journey past the major landscapes and artefacts of drama education to find our bearings in a new world. Our new home, the space and place in which drama educators must now navigate, to create, teach and challenge, will be deconstructed and examined. Two seasoned travellers, Dr Sharon Hogan and Professor Emeritus Brad Haseman, will guide us through an evocative and provocative keynote to map the new world, assist us to reset our moral compass and find the navigational points that teachers and teaching artists need to fully advance our pedagogy of creativity: drama education. And as we sail into the future, we must remain true to the challenge Homer wrote in his opening lines over 2,500 years ago: “…tell the old story for our modern times. Find the beginning.”
Presented by Dr Sharon Hogan and Professor Emeritus Brad Haseman.
