Over the past few years there has been ever present concerns regarding the changing state of drama education in Queensland. Conversations have been dominated by talks of subject scaling, time pressures, increased class sizes, cross curricular priorities, syllabus design and the onflow effects of these. It’s easy to get stuck in one monochrome view. Seeing things from only one perspective and focusing on the negative.
To combat that, we bring you KALEIDOSCOPE, which by definition is an assortment of seemingly different, disconnected coloured material but when turned reflections are created to show a series of beautiful patterns which reveal different perspectives.
The changing landscape of drama education is inevitable, but the way we view, think about and deal with this change is not. Its time take another look and remind ourselves of all the beautiful colourful possibilities which drama education offers our students. Drama offers an engaging aesthetic educational environment where learning is humanised, and students are empowered. A study of drama encourages critical thinking, builds collaborative and interpersonal skills, and develops students’ artistic skills and creativity. Drama is unique and essential in producing well round compassionate young people, ready to take on the world.
