The Democracy through Drama Summer School will offer teachers of Humanities subjects an in-depth understanding of implementing dramatic tools in the subject lessons in order to create democratic spaces where students can raise questions, express opinion, look at situations from multiple perspectives and engage in the social dimension of the curriculum.
Find all the details here: Summer School webpage
Besides the rich professional program led by experts from the UK, Italy, Belgium, Hungary and Greece, participants of the Summer School will also have the opportunity to take part in “off-the-beaten-track” cultural programs to experience Budapest. Social programs will offer possibilities to engage with teachers with similar interests from all around Europe.

InSite Drama created a debate theatre performance for 11-14 year olds to enhance discussion, sensitise and empower students in relation to issues of social injustice and bullying. Over 550 children took part in the 7 performances in different parts of Budapest, 50 copies of the booklet were distributed to teachers of the participating groups to help their follow-up work with the students. Besides the three actors and one actor/moderator specialists from two fields shared information within the program about the issues discussed openly by the participants.
The project was supported by the Open Society Foundations.
InSite has provided support for two young actor/drama teachers’ to set up their own organisation and explore what it is like to operate an independent organisation. Fanni Fodor and Timea Török have created two TIE programmes that they will tour to schools in Hungary.
Their website is only in Hungarian currently.
InSite Drama, in cooperation with Artemisszió Foundation has created a new Debate Theatre performance for 11-14 year old’s on the subject of xenophobia and bullying.
We will be performing the interactive programme 7 times in Budapest during December and schools in Budapest can apply for the free performances.
We created the performance and offer it free of charge thanks to the financial support of the Open Society Foundations.
The Giant’s Embrace, directed by Ceri Townsend, was invited to Bethlehem International Performing Arts Festival. InSite and Round Table TIE Company members spent five days in Palestine between the 7th and the 11th of October and performed the theatre in education programme in three schools as well, beside the official Festival performance.
It was fantastic to meet artists from around the world and children and young people from Palestine at the five performances. A big thanks to the BIPAF team of volunteers and organisers!
We also thank NKA and Roberta Cimmetta Fund for making our participation at the Festival possible with their support.
