We were delighted to recently join forces with the Performance Design Educator’s Collective, the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, and the Association for Theatre in Higher Education to invite theatre educators from across the world to Teaching Theatre Design Online: A Roundtable.

Chaired by our very own Head of Higher Education Talia Rodgers, the event focused on sharing exciting and inspiring ways to teach Theatre Design in an online environment. 

Our fantastic panel included award-winning lighting designer Kathy Perkins, designer, director and writer Michael Spencer, designer and co-Artistic Director for performance company Seven Sisters Group Dr Sophie Jump, and Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Theatre at Michigan State University Stephen Di Benedetto.

The panel shared their ideas for helping to bring design practice into the virtual classroom, with a range of tangible and inspirational examples. You can sign up to access the full webinar recording for free below.
