Über die Veranstaltung

Annual Conference 2024 Creativity in Conflict Saturday 12th October (in-person day event in Manchester) & 14th-20th October (online workshops)

This  year our conference offerings will centre around International  Dramatherapy Week, inviting collaboration and participation from across  the world.

In these tumultuous times, where conflicts and  challenges abound, we gather once again to explore the transformative  power of dramatherapy. Our theme this year, “Creativity in Conflict,”  invites us to delve into the heart of human struggle, resilience, and  empowerment.  Conflict is an inherent part of the human experience. Whether it arises  from external circumstances, internal struggles, or interpersonal  dynamics, conflict shapes our lives. Conflict is something we experience  nationally, in society, in our profession, in our association and in  our personal lives.  As dramatherapists, we recognise that conflict can be both a catalyst  for growth and a barrier to well-being. Our task is to harness the  creative potential within conflict, using it as a springboard for  change. To welcome those angry parts of us who love us enough to speak  up when the see injustice or feel hurt.  Conflict is fire energy. It can destroy and it can also sweep away the  old to make space for the new to grow. How can we dance with this fire?   Can we rewrite narratives, break cycles of violence, embody new roles,  and find novel solutions. Creativity becomes a lifeline, guiding us  through the chaos.  Our conference aims to bridge theory and practice. We invite you to  share your research, case studies, and innovative approaches. Let us  explore themes of interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics, restoration,  the drama triangle and conflict. How can dramatherapy empower  individuals to navigate conflict zones—whether internal or external? How  do we support clients returning to life after emotional upheaval?

In-person day event: 12th October, Manchester

This  will focus on connecting with our community, and will host our AGM,  keynote(s) and a performance, with plenty time to connect with each  other.
