Fostering drama for you

At Drama Tasmania we support the teaching and learning of drama and theatre in education. To encourage the use of drama across all levels of learning we promote its value in education and emphasise professionalism in all aspects of teaching.

Drama is learning tool that requires as little as your imagination and it can foster creativity, confidence and lateral thinking.

Drama, drama and more drama!

Drama Tasmania is about more than just one form of theatre.

We offer professional learning in drama to support teachers.

To reflect and improve on your teaching practices we also provide avenues for discussion where you can review and improve your teaching methods and share new ideas.
