For ​our ​2016 ​annual ​forum, ​the ​Program ​in ​Educational ​Theatre ​builds ​on ​the ​work ​of ​previous ​annual ​events ​in ​curriculum, ​assessment, ​teaching ​artistry, ​playwriting, ​ethnodrama, ​Shakespeare, ​citizenship, ​and ​site ​specific ​theatre ​by ​inviting ​the ​global ​community ​to ​propose ​workshops, ​papers, ​posters, ​narratives, ​and ​performances ​around ​one ​of ​the ​following ​topics:

- ​Drama ​in ​Education ​(i.e., ​studies ​in ​drama/theatre ​curriculum, ​special ​education, ​integrated ​arts, ​assessment ​and ​evaluation)
- ​Applied ​Theatre ​(i.e., ​studies ​in ​community-based ​theatre, ​theatre ​of ​the ​oppressed, ​the ​ ​ ​ ​ ​teaching ​artist, ​diversity ​and ​inclusion)
- ​Theatre ​for ​Young ​Audiences ​and ​Play ​Production ​(i.e., ​studies ​in ​acting, ​directing, ​dramaturgy, ​playwriting, ​dramatic ​literature, ​theatre ​technology, ​arts-based ​research ​methodologies)

The ​2016 ​forum ​will ​also ​celebrate ​fifty ​years ​of ​leadership ​and ​artist ​praxis ​at ​one ​of ​the ​world’s ​premier ​academies ​of ​excellence. ​The ​NYU ​Program ​in ​Educational ​Theatre, ​founded ​in ​1966 ​by ​the ​late ​innovators ​Lowell ​and ​Nancy ​Swortzell, ​has ​graduated ​over ​five ​thousand ​students ​who ​have ​assumed ​authoritative ​positions ​in ​cultural ​institutions, ​colleges ​and ​schools, ​community ​centers ​and ​other ​agencies ​worldwide. ​Recognized ​as ​one ​of ​the ​foremost ​centers ​for ​preparing ​the ​next ​generation ​of ​drama ​educators, ​theatre ​practitioners, ​scholars ​and ​artists, ​NYU ​remains ​a ​beacon ​for ​spearheading ​new ​developments ​in ​the ​field.

Additionally, ​we ​will ​be ​awarding ​the ​first ​ever ​Swortzell ​Innovator ​Awards ​for ​leadership ​in ​the ​field ​of ​Educational ​Theatre ​in ​each ​of ​the ​three ​strands ​listed ​above. ​We ​will ​begin ​accepting ​nominations ​for ​the ​awards ​in ​fall ​2015. ​Details ​to ​follow.
