Sign on, grab a drink, relax and get creative with an NAC Teaching Artist!
Join colleagues from across the country for a night of creativity hosted by the NAC. This free session will include a meet and great with an NAC Teaching Artist, an informal chance to exchange ideas and learn from colleagues, and participation in a creative experience that teachers are welcome to try out with their own learners.
Join the NAC in a fun evening of drama games! As drama educators, we understand the importance of play in the classroom as a way to connect, build ensemble and explore key elements of the drama curriculum with our students. This informal, participatory session will invite educators to playfully share and exchange their favourite drama games with one another, and discuss their applications in the classroom. This session is guaranteed to give you fresh ideas and inspiration to bring back into your drama classroom the very next day!
Materials to have ready: No materials required, just come ready to participate and facilitate your favourite drama game!
