NATD Archive: Journal for Drama in Education

The National Association for the Teaching of Drama has very generously made available their entire existing archive of Journal for Drama in Education, stretching back nearly twenty years.

The NATD is a democratic association which exists to promote and develop drama as an essential part of the child’s entitlement to a full, balanced, humanising education.

Founded in 1974 NATD continues to support and promote drama within and outside the curriculum at grassroots and government level.

They hold regional events for teachers, practitioners and educators and run an annual conference. Dorothy Heathcote (the president of NATD) and the playwright, Edward Bond, are frequent presenters.

The Journal for Drama in Education publishes practical and theoretical thinking from both national and international contributors to the field of drama in education.

For more information on becoming a member of NATD or to book a place on the next conference please download the attached leaflet.
