We are a community of young people, teachers and artists.
Our world depends on confident, internationally minded, collaborative and culturally literate young people who are empowered to engage with and change the world. ISTA brings together young people, artists and teachers from different countries in different settings to experience, create and learn about theatre.
We passionately value diversity, collaboration, celebration, play, friendship and collegiality.
I LOVE this book. I have read the essays and articles and find I am inspired by the words and ideas presented. Reading it has reinvigorated my passion for arts education, and specifically theatre education, and solidified my belief in its importance.
Teachers spend hours and hours combing books and the internet for ideas in order to plan classroom units or revitalise already existing ones. As a teacher of theatre, if for no other reason, buy this book for the incredible amount of unique and useful units of study, strategies, and games to use in the classroom. I have never seen this many amazing resources and great ideas all combined in one resource.
I already loved the Artist Toolbox edition of ISTA's Scene, kept it by my desk and used it regularly. The Adventures In Theatre book has surpassed that resource twice over and then some. Such a goldmine of ideas, wisdom and hot-out-of-the-oven strategies and games. I'll be keeping this book by my desk for sure!
