Who are we?

Said simply, Drama Tasmania is the association who supports and promotes drama education across this great state. Our aim is to work with you, the teachers, the education professionals, the drama enthusiasts to provide the best for drama education.

Drama Tasmania is a non-profit professional association supporting drama educators across the State of Tasmania. Our members work in the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors in drama education. Drama Tasmania collaborates with the theatre industry through companies, artists and arts venues, to provide opportunities to offer professional learning to our members.
