EdTA’s 2023 conference will explore the power within every theatre educator to effect change in their students and the theatre education field: The Power of YOU. In a climate of increased censorship and divisive concepts laws, YOU are the best resource to build a culture of inclusivity for your students, your colleagues, and your community. YOUR spark can build a brighter future.

It’s time to invest in YOU – and that’s exactly the focus of 2023 Theatre Education Conference.

Why Should You Attend?
