Hope in the humble drama classroom!
In celebration of the upcoming first ever International Day for Education on January 24, Crow's Theatre and Project: Humanity are recognizing the unfathomable contribution drama teachers are making all over the world! We're calling it #MyDramaTeacher and you're invited to take part.
The UN General Assembly recently acknowledged the foundational role of education for peace and development, and we couldn’t agree more. We’re specifically passionate about the way in which the humble Drama classroom provides space for young people to confront the critical questions and forces shaping our world today.
In honour of the life-changing impact of drama education, we've asked some the cast of Towards Youth - the new play from acclaimed documentary theatre-maker, Andrew Kushnir - to tell us about their Drama teachers:
Now, we want to hear from you!
Tell us about your current or past drama teacher on social media, tag us and use the hashtags #MyDramaTeacher and #TowardsYouth.
Answer these easy questions:
- What is your drama teacher's name?
- Give 3 words to describe what they were like?
- What's the one thing they said or one thing they taught you that has stuck?
- Thank your drama teacher.
Share your video on social media and tag us!
You can also send your video directly to us using WeTransfer (upload your file and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will post it on our page.
Reserve your tickets to see the world premiere of Towards Youth at Crow’s Theatre and follow us on social media to see others give a shout-out to their drama teachers.
