Introduction to Participatory Arts and Inclusive Classroom Pedagogies - A Theatre for Development Training

This pilot programme by EnCre8 is created in collaboration with the British Council and in partnership with Singapore International Foundation.

Co-led by Jodi-Alissa Bickerton from GRAEAE THEATRE COMPANY (UK's leading Disability Arts theatre company, pioneering accessibility in world class theatre) and Grace Lee-Khoo from ACCESS PATH PRODUCTIONS (Singapore's creative organisation, championing equal access to the arts), this introductory course promises to transform your experience of performance making through the disability arts lens. 

Crafted for teachers and educators in the field of arts making with D/deaf and disabled communities, this bespoke programme designed with an international and home ground perspective will impact the foundation of your practices. 

This programme is conducted through a series of workshops and webinars by Singapore and UK practitioners in 2 phases. In Phase 1, you will be introduced to concepts, practices and will engage in group work over 5 weeks. In Phase 2, Jodi will join us in Singapore for an intensive 5 day workshop.
