* A reminder that applications for the $500 scholarships to attend TE KORE – the Drama NZ conference close on 31st March.* Two scholarships are available, one for a beginner teacher and one for a teacher from a rural school. Check out details at www.drama.org.nz.
Conference is looking good – with a range of papers and presentations of particular interest to Mantle practitioners, including reports on MOTE projects at primary and secondary school, a EOTC project working with the Department of Conservation, Masters and PhD level research into MOTE and process drama. Our keynote presenters are amazing – Waimihi Hotere is a local Maori theatre maker and advocate, Pam Bowell is an experienced process drama practitioner. Both will be running workshops as well as giving their keynote addresses. And we are also hoping to include a skype chat live with Luke Abbott from www.mantleoftheexpert.com. How could you miss it!
Registration is $385 including conference dinner. Amazing value for a 3 day event.
