Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

THEATRE PRACTITIONERS ONLINE

I am creating an On Line video training platform that will allow Drama Teachers within Australia and (hopefully) the rest of the world. A collection of theatre practitioners that are able to share their teaching methodologies via online video and video streaming technologies.

 

The idea came about during the NSW Drama Conference '4CING The Future' 2017. Where I met Mark Bunnett, He is the president of the Territories Drama Association, He spoke of the difficulty of being in a remote area and the difficulties of getting access to Professional Development that was offered at the '4CING The Future' 2017 Drama Conference.

 

This is when I offered the idea for a live streaming webinar of a Professional Development workshop in my area of expertise 'Commedia del'Arte'. Mark and I now have a plan in place to conduct the first live streaming, in the Northern Territory Professional Development workshop for July 2018.

 

If this live webinar is effective it will be recorded and saved to the website, if there are other practitioners that follow our footsteps and we saved their Professional Development video, It can be added to a library of Professional development resources which could be accessed at any time by its members or one off fee.

Theatre Practitioners Online strive hard to achieve perfection for students as well as Instructors.

As a starting-point I have built this platform with my teaching in mind, I’m hoping to put all my teaching methodologies, workshop techniques up on the screen so the teachers can access it from wherever they are in Australia and maybe the world.

I will be inviting other theatre practitioners to offer their workshops so that I will end up building a library of Professional Development workshops from many and varied practitioners I hope that you support me in this endeavour and it will grow to become a valuable resource.
