Drama New Zealand, in association with Toitu, Settlers Museum, is excited to open the expression of interest process to present at the 2017 Drama New Zealand National Conference, A h-uile bord! (All Aboard).
The Drama New Zealand Conference will be held in Dunedin from Friday 17th-Sunday 19th March 2017. These dates coincide with Dunedin’s Fringe Festival.

The conference theme focuses on ‘identity’, ‘legacies’ and ‘heritage’.  We will explore ways in which to share our journeys and culture through collaborative practice including site specific drama.

The Conference will cater to all Drama educators from all sectors with a dynamic program, including workshops, papers, and panel discussions.  The Conference will take place predominantly at Toitu but will also include some of Dunedin’s other landmarks as an opportunity to engage with our beautiful heritage city. 
The Conference Sub-Committee invite practitioners, performers, artists, and members of the Drama New Zealand community to submit expressions of interest for presentations at the conference. We encourage teachers, practitioners and researchers to consider sharing their work through a paper or workshop.
