Conferences and Talks
Connecting Energies – Creating Visuals – Transforming Selves, SDEA Theatre Arts Conference , Singapore Drama Educators Association, Singapore, June 2-5, 2011
'The moments you remember in your life are probably ones that are a little theatrical – the teacher who dramatised a story so you not only learnt plot and vocabulary, but also empathy and compassion, a warm up game that not only helped you connect with strangers but find out more about their personalities as well as your own, or how, after watching a performance, you were moved enough to examine your own opinions and notions, then make changes. These are just some of the things that participants will re-discover and in turn, think about applying in their own lives at Singapore’s largest ever Theatre Arts Conference.
Held in association with this year’s Singapore Arts Festival, this inaugural event organised by the Singapore Drama Educators Association (SDEA) aims to provide a platform for practitioners to share their experiences, methodologies and research.
Targeted at teachers, independent teaching artists, counsellors, health care workers, social and cultural workers, as well as organisations engaged in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, the conference will see contributions from 50 theatre arts practitioners from 12 countries including Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, the UK and USA.'

National Consultation on Using Visuals as a Pedagogical Aid for Gender Sensitivity 18th Feb 2011
'National Consultation organized by the Department of Women’s Studies, National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in collaboration with Centre for Women’s Development Studies (CWDS) on using visuals and other mediums for promoting gender sensitivity. Our purpose in organizing this Consultation is to bring together scholars, artists, teachers, teacher’s educators, planners and NCERT’s own experts who are involved in using different forms of visuals for promoting issues of equity and equality.
We hope that the National Consultation will generate a rich body of ideas and suggestions which can be used for formulating future plan of action to make this medium an important aid in the teaching and learning processes.'

Unesco 2nd world conference on Arts Education, May 25-28, 2010
'The Arts in most, if not all, cultures are integral to life: function, creation and learning are intertwined. The Arts withholds the potential to being fundamentally instrumental, in both formal and non-formal ways, as vehicles of knowledge and the methods of learning different disciplines. This instrumental approach to Arts Education neither limits the Arts as a supplementary educational tool, nor simply aims at bringing arts into curricula as the main content or a study subject.
UNESCO basically promotes two main approaches to Arts Education, which can be implemented at the same time and need not be distinct. The “learning through the arts/culture” approach demonstrates how we can utilize artistic expressions and cultural resources and practises, contemporary and traditional, as a learning tool. It targets to draw on the rich wealth of culture, knowledge and skills of societies to enhance an inter-disciplinary approach to learning in a range of subject areas.'
