Unity through Diversity – Celebrating & Exploring Inclusivity via Drama Education is a focus of our professional learning program through 2018 - 2020.
‘Unity through Diversity’ is a series of professional learning opportunities and resources providing support to specialist Drama and generalist teachers to explore the Drama component of the Victorian Curriculum from Foundation to Year 10. The purpose of the program is to create safe spaces for a diverse range of students to feel they are valuable members of their community, promoting acceptance and understanding through dramatic exploration.
Drama Victoria are able to provide these workshops and resources thanks to the support of the Strategic Partnerships Program, Victorian State Government Department of Education and Training.
