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

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. Themed Rooting Deep, Branching Wide - Strengthening Practices and Expanding Possibilities, we aim to examine these current and evolving ways, especially within the realms of education, community, and performance. 

Artists, educators, practitioners, and researchers will be presenting a diverse range of presentations, workshops, keynotes, and masterclasses through the lenses of Practices & Pedagogies, Spaces & Places, and Causes & Communities.

Taking place on 30th June to 2nd July 2023, the SDEA Theatre Arts Conference will be conducted both on and offline so you can join us whether you're in Singapore or across the world.
