Open space notes – teaching English through theatre

Here are some brief notes on what was discussed at the session on how the English language can be taught to people through theatre and other artistic endeavour.

  • Opportunity for corporate validation: taking english language theatre to companies for staff benefit – “canteen theatre”
  • Library as venue? Engage families

  • How to get messages out there to the people that need the service?
  • Integration and a two way learning process
  • Getting people into a venue
