About the Drama and Theatre Education Alliance
The Drama and Theatre Education Alliance is a group of associations covering the realms of drama, theatre and education.
They launched their manifesto at the National Theatre on the 13 March 2020. They call for every child and young person to have an entitlement to drama and theatre throughout their education.
‘Drama is a source for cultural capital, identity and heritage; it inspires us to take risks, think critically and builds social cohesion through collaboration. It can change and shape our lives through developing creativity, cognition, empathy and resilience.’
Drama and Theatre Education Alliance Manifesto
The manifesto was developed by Action for Children’s Arts, London Drama, London Theatre Consortium, National Drama, NST (Nuffield Southampton Theatres), SCUDD (The Standing Conference of University Drama Departments), Theatre Education Forum and Theatre Workout.
