The conference will bring together teachers, academics and researchers from a range of international institutions engaged with the teaching of theatre and performance design to explore current pedagogy and provide a discursive platform for exploring new approaches to learning and teaching across the subject.

The conference will also launch the new Theatre and Performance Design Education Network and confirm its Mission Statement and Governance. The Network will build on this inaugural conference instigating a range of international research including sharing best practice and joint institutional projects.
