How can drama help engaging in democracy and creating a democratic classroom? What sort of dramatic tools can teachers of humanities use with 11 to 15 years old’s in the classroom? What opportunities do teachers have in the Hungarian school system to engage in social issues? How can democracy be perceived in relation to the teacher – pupil relationship?
The workshop presents the Democracy through Drama international project and a needs analysis conduced with teachers, and possible classroom lessons that will open responses to the questions above.

A course on doing Process Drama with Early Years
While the games of children in early years are filled with stories, role play and being in fiction, we do not rely enough on these capacities of children to create community, fun and learning.
Kostas Amoiropoulos works with this age-group on a daily level and is an internationally acclaimed expert on Process Drama. InSite has invited him from Greece to share his knowledge with all those interested.
The course will be in English with Hungarian translation.
Dates: 6th April, 5:30 PM to 8th April 3:00 PM
Venue: Jurányi Inkubátorház, Budapest 1027, Jurányi utca 1.

A central question for drama in education has been the role of theatre in classroom drama. Adam Bethlenfalvy completed his PhD research as the student of Birmingham City University studying the possibilities of connecting ‘living through drama’ with Edward Bond’s theatre theory and practice.
InSite Drama is participating in an Erasmus+ project led by Birmingham City University that aims to help teachers working with 11-15 year old young people to create democratic spaces in their classrooms. Besides BCU our partners in the project are the Heartlands Academy from Birmingham, Ellinogermaniki Agogi school from Athens, the MimesisLab from the University of Rome and KeKi, the Children’s Right Knowledge Centre from Ghent.
We will be performing The Edge seven times in this season. The dates of the performances are the following:
