Our course, "Drama as a Tool for Inclusion: Promoting Diversity, Tolerance, and Self-Expression in Schools," provides a practical exploration of how drama can be used to promote self-expression, tolerance, diversity and to create inclusive educational environments. This course is designed for educators, teachers, and school staff who seek to understand the transformative potential of drama in these crucial areas.


Throughout the program, participants engage in a series of drama-based activities and exercises that encourage self-expression and effective communication. These activities are accessible to all, regardless of prior experience, and aim to help participants find their voice and express their thoughts and feelings confidently. A significant focus of this course is on using drama to promote empathy and understanding among learners. Participants will learn how to use dramatic techniques to step into the perspectives of others, fostering greater compassion and respect in educational settings. This approach enriches educators' abilities to create inclusive and supportive learning environments, where each student feels valued and heard.
