    Theatre Education to Stop Ecocide and Start Good Living!

    Theatre education in schools and communities enables us, students and teachers, to create, produce and perform the futures we envision. Can we each act, together, on time, to save our world?

    This series of three webinars places performance at the heart of South-North dialogues to achieve three aims in times of ecocide and climate collapse:

    ● To view an Amazon-German students-theatre project collaboration as an example, to see how we might work in the space between Ecocide and Good Living.

    ● To view a Global project collaboration and six communities in crisis to see how students' theatre projects in schools might act globally in our local place, between Ecocide and Good Living.

    ● To identify diverse strategies and develop plans for theatre education for Good Living through collaborative projects in and between different regions across the world.

    This webinar series, proposed by Joachim Reiss and Tonio Kempf (former and actual presidents of BVTS), has emerged from a long collaboration between Brazilian (ABRA) and German national associations of theatre educators and drama in school, inspired by Amazonian projects (coordinated by former IDEA President, Dan Baron Cohen).

    Webinar 1 - held on Saturday, April 9th, 2022

    Webinar 2 - Saturday, May 7th, from 12pm to 2pm UTC - Context and example of Global Multicultural Collaborative Project

    Webinar 3 - Saturday, June 4th, from 12pm to 2pm UTC

    After the end of each webinar, there will be an Open Space of 30 minutes where participants can continue the conversation in the chat if they wish. 

    Participation in the first webinar is not a condition for participation in the second one - everyone is welcome!

    The fourth session of the webinar THE (HI)STORY OF IDEA will take place on Saturday, 30th April at 12 pm (noon) UTC on Zoom. Please, join us and invite your colleagues, so we can all together map the history and future of drama/theatre education through IDEA's story.

    The event is conceptualized as an intergenerational and intercultural dialogue that examines IDEA history through a critical lens, but also with an aim of tracking the evolution of drama/theatre education and directing its future.

    The featured guests of the fourth session are Dan Baron Cohen and Andreea Jicman, while the session host is Zeki Ozen, IDEA Director of Research, and the technical host is Borisav Matic, the IDEA Administrator.

    Dan Baron Cohen is a community performance educator and eco-cultural activist of Welsh-Quebecois origin, who has lived in the Brazilian Amazon city of Marabá since 2008.

    In 1998, a visiting professorship at the University of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, launched collaborations with landless, indigenous, trade-union and university communities across Brazil. He has dedicated the past 24 years to developing his Transformance pedagogy (transformation through performance) in collaboration networks in Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe.

    Between 2001-2012, Dan contributed to the International Council of the World Social Forum. Between 1998-2004, he served as President of the GMC of IDEA and between 2004-2010, as President of the EC. In this capacity, Dan co-founded and chaired the World Alliance for Arts Education (2006-2010), collaborating with UNESCO.

    Today, Dan prioritizes his 12-year Rivers of Meeting project in the Afro-Indigenous village of Cabelo Seco, nurturing youth-led community cooperatives. These performance educators coordinate solar-energy, medicinal plant gardens, street libraries and cinemas, and workshop courses in their Community University of the Rivers, to nurture a paradigm of education based on ecopedagogies for sustainable community.

    Dan has published essays, poems, videos and the books: Theatre of Self-determination, Cultural Literacy, Harvest in Times of Drought, and the Rivers of Meeting Pedagogies.

    Andreea Jicman is an associate professor at UNATC „I.L. Caragiale” at the Center for Pedagogical and Didactic Training from February 2021. She is also collaborating with different private and public schools for theatre workshops.

    Over time, she has worked with people ranging in age from 3 years to adults, in contexts of non-formal or formal education, thus gaining experience in working with various groups. During the past few years, she was part of the coordination and implementation team of several activities (conferences, exploratory seminars, workshops) and educational projects implemented by the Theatre Pedagogy MA within the Acting Department of “I.L. Caragiale” UNATC.

    She graduated the BA in Communication (SNSPA) and the MA in Theater Pedagogy (UNATC). In February 2021 she presented her doctoral thesis entitled “The art of theatre for social inclusion”, an argument in favor of adapting and applying theatrical methods and techniques to facilitate an inclusive climate within the educational environment. The aim of her research interest is to identify concrete ways to use theatre for educational purposes and as a tool for cultural intervention.

    IDEA and the IDEA Congress in Iceland will hold a webinar on ZOOM on April 20 from 14: 00-15: 30 UTC to introduce the activities of the Special Interest Groups at the Congress. (Check your local time here). 


    At the webinar, the leaders of the Special Interest Groups (SIG) who will be at the conference will introduce themselves and the issues that will be addressed there.

    The following eight SIG groups will be introduced:

    1. Drama and theatre in a multicultural world – Wendy Lathrop Meyer and LI Dequan

    2. Drama and theatre in kindergarten and primary schools. – Merete Sörensen and George Belliveau

    3. Youth: Drama and theatre in secondary education – Annemari Untamala and Hanna Saari

    4. Strategies, tactics, steps for drama/theatre as a school subject – Joachim Reiss and Nancy Stella Franco Rendon

    5. Teacher Training in drama and theatre – Larry Schwarts and Monica Prendergast

    6. Theatre for community development – Silvia Vammaro and Marianne Nødtvedt Knudsen

    7. Drama for peace education – Tintti Karpinen and Zeki Ozen

    8. Drama and theatre in Science, Technology and new Media – Liliana Galvan.

    Each moderator has about 5-10 minutes to introduce their project. After the presentations, there will be time for questions and discussions.

    The activities of SIG groups are an important part of every IDEA conference. Many issues concerning the progress of theater in school work and the social context are discussed and dissected. These groups often continue to work after the conference ends, and sometimes they live from one conference to another. By working in a SIG group, it is possible to be influenced by others and promote progress in acting in society.

    We encourage everyone interested in the Special Interest Groups to come to the webinar

    The World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE), a global network for associations - including IDEA - representing arts educators worldwide, notes with grief the ongoing conflicts that cause such havoc and pain for human beings. This violence denies youth and their communities the simple experiences of peace, education, and culture without which no one can thrive. The WAAE advocates for international collaboration and understanding, and such irresponsible and unprovoked violence are an assault on all those who seek to enable education, cultivate culture, and promote peace.

    WAAE, in recognition of the human rights to peace, education, and culture, strongly condemns all violence and conflicts. Recognizing an urgent need for peace education, WAAE urges leaders and individuals to endeavor to give peace a chance, especially through arts and cultural learning. We acknowledge the power of arts education to develop consciousness and foster harmony between individuals, society and environment.

    The WAAE sends its thoughts and expresses its solidarity to the millions of arts educators in areas of conflict and around the world who are working for peace, showing compassion, using the power of the arts to foster and transform humanity through our schools, communities, and societies.

    The WAAE pledges to support arts educators who harness the power and potential of education through the arts to promote peace. We challenge all arts educators around the world to continue to work together for a strong international community of arts education fostering collaboration, inclusion, empathy, and compassion for all.

    The second session of the online event THE (HI)STORY OF IDEA was held on Saturday, 12th March at 12 pm (Noon) UTC. 

    Although the plan is for each session in the series to take place the last Saturday of the month, we had to postpone the second session due to unexpected circumstances. The third session will be held as planned on Saturday, 26th March.

    The featured guests of the second session were Stig A. Eriksson, one of the founders of IDEA and part of our association from the very beginning, a Professor Emeritus in drama and applied theatre at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, at the Institute of the Arts in Bergen, Norway; and Anj Heruela, a drama/theatre teacher from the Philippines, the director of Young IDEA from 2013 till 2017, a member of PETA and the creative and Strategy Director in Ant Savvy Creatives. 


    The dialogue between guests was in a form of a walk through the IDEA memory lane through a critical lens, and a glimpse into what the future of IDEA could look like.

    The session host was Sanja Krsmanovic Tasic and the technical host Borisav Matic.
