NPA, Northumbria Performing Arts Symposium
In a climate of cuts, this public symposium will question the role of drama and wider arts participation in education. The event aims to provoke debate about the impact of the Arts on the lives of young people.
The symposium is inviting contributions from key figures in the Arts and Education. This event is open to the public, so please come along and join the debate.
This event is free, and to book a place visit the Northern Stage website: https://www.northernstage.co.uk/whats-on/symposium-do-young-people-really-need-drama?filter=21/05/2015
