7th ATHENS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE - CALL FOR PAPERS & WORKSHOPS
7th ATHENS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
“THEATRE/DRAMA & EDUCATION – BONDS OF SOLIDARITY”
23-25 November, 2012
CALL FOR PAPERS & WORKSHOPS
Dear friends, old and new, around the world!
The Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network is the Greek ordinary member of IDEA, since 2004. Our scientific association was created 14 years ago and since its day-one has been struggling for (and succeeded) the creation of a theatre & education field in the country, on theoretical, research and practical level.
Our continuing work of in-service trainings, seminars, day conferences and theatre camps, but most of all, our 6 Athens international conferences so far, have always been accepted with enthousiasm, both inside the country and abroad. Our vsion is to bring together everyone actively interseted in this field, to create a platform of equal dialogue between researchers, artists, educators, students, academics, facilitators.
This year has been the worst one since long time ago for our country. The global economical crisis and the political instability have stopped practically every serious event on the cultural front and people in Greece are experiencing everyday frustration in their work and life, mizery and lack of inspiration and self-esteem to work creatively.
It is EXACTLY this hour that we believe is worth making every effort to hold our 7th Athens International Conference “Drama/Theatre & Education: Bonds of Solidarity”.
It is exactly this hour that we need to show solidarity to one another, like the connection theatre & education share.
It is our honour that the previous IDEA Executive Committee has decided that all Athens International Conferences are recognised as events in collaboration with IDEA. We will make any effort to create another successfull Athens Conference.
This year our budget is very limited but we will make efforts that delegates whose input will be accepted (papers, workshops, etc), will need not pay for conference fees.
We are sending you our call for papers and workshops and we are looking forward to your propositions! Let’s all meet in Athens next November. Let’s not allow the misery and disapointment bring us down. Let’s show the world OUR bonds of solidarity!
Gen. Secretary of the board
