The seventh annual Drama in Education Days will take place online from September 10th-12th 2021. Should the pandemic situation allow for it, a hybrid-format with a day of on-site workshops (Germany) might become possible, but we will not be able to make a decision on this before late spring/early summer 2021.

Abstracts may be submitted in German or English (max. 300 words). Please include a brief biography (max. 50 words).  Submission deadline is April 15th, 2021.
