Theatre Arts Conference 2023 - Rooting Deep, Branching Wide: Strengthening Practices and Expanding Possibilities

Inviting artists, educators, practitioners and researchers to think about their work through the lenses of Practices & Pedagogies, Spaces & Places, and/or Causes & Communities, this conference will feature a range of presentations, workshops, lectures, and performances. Creatives, by nature,  observe, raise questions, stimulate thought, and develop agency. As we dig our roots deeper to find meaning in our current contexts, practices, and environments, we branch wide to explore new ways of doing and ways of being in an increasingly complex world. The SDEA Theatre Arts Conference 2023 aims to examine  these current and evolving ways, especially within education, community, and performance
