On 25th January, the DTEA was priviledged to present its case to the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Children’s Media and the Arts.
Hosted by the APPG Chair: Baroness Floella Benjamin of Beckenham, we discussed the importance of keeping Drama and Theatre for children and young people alive.
Presenations were made by:
Dr Steve Ball - Chair DTEA - Drama and Theatre Education Alliance
Dr Geoffrey Readman - Chair - National Drama
Noah Superville - Pupil (Finchley Catholic High School)
Tianna Moore - College student from Esher College
Bhavik Parmar - Head of Education - Birmingham Repertory Theatre
Romana Flello - Head of Creative Engagement - Kiln Theatre, London
This well-attended event marks a positive and pivotal landmark in achieving the DTEA's objectives, as our message will be seen and heard by over 100 members of the APPG, but all MP's will receive the full minutes, presentations, the testemony and statistics presented.
The full minutes will be made available once verified by the APPG, but we will be sharing the presentations.
