PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 2015

Dance, Theatre and Visual Art: Engaging Students with Disability 

Thursday 20 August and Friday 21 August, 2015

Friday 5 and Saturday 6 September, 2014

The Sydney Opera House Creative Learning Program is designed to deliver key competencies to support 21st Century learning. The program engages students to be creatively inspired, leading to understanding and respect for new and diverse perspectives.

Discover how dance, music, theatre and visual arts can unlock your students’ learning in stimulating and enjoyable ways. For those seeking to refresh their creative arts skills, this two-day forum will offer primary and secondary teachers practical ways to incorporate the arts into their classroom practice.

Teachers have the opportunity to discuss latest research, participate in creative arts workshops, learn about professional arts education programs and meet key leaders in the arts and disability network.

Participants will work alongside leading artists from Sensorium Theatre and will have the opportunity to explore Sensorium Theatre’s production Oddysea. The highly regarded work of the MCA Bella Program artists will also be featured alongside talks and workshops by sector leaders including Gerard O’Dwyer (award-winning actor and theatre maker), David Capra (the 2015 Bella Room Commission Artist) and Murmuration Dance Theatre.

An annual forum held in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
