Our 2024 Professional Learning program offers teachers the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in design and technical elements of live performance.
Each day will be split into two halves; PROCESS in the morning, and PRACTICE in the afternoons. Workshops can be attended as a full-day experience, or in two halves. Each workshop is standalone, and attendance at the other is not required.
PROCESS workshops do require participants to attend the linked performance for each workshop, at their own expense. Perth Festival can facilitate this as part of a group booking on a set date, or participants can organize their own tickets. You will decide on application which option you’d like to do.
PROCESS workshops will involve a discussion about the show, a Q&A with artists involved in the performance, and a session on how working with that design element impacts artistic processes.
PRACTICE workshops will be a hands-on exploration of that design element, with a focus on helping you pass this learning on to your students. Programs and technology used will be cheap, accessible and easy-to-work-with.
Certificates of Professional Development Completion are made available to participants after the workshops.
