wastage of precious time spent in commuting across the city.
We are delighted to announce 2016's Second School Leaders' Collective for schools in and around Bangalore Central. The theme of the collective is Fostering Creativity in Schools - the role of the dramatic arts. There is a large amount of rhetoric about schools needing to foster life-skills, critical
thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication, popularly called the 21 st century skills, in their students. And schools attempt to address this additional demand on curricular time by having external specialists and service-providers plug this need as a 'bolt-on'. Unfortunately this only serves as a cosmetic
enhancement rather than truly adding value to a child's learning experience.
Drama is the one medium that can incorporate all these 21st century skills organically, with demonstrable learning outcomes. Our guest speaker for the day – Jehan Manekshaw makes an emphatic case for authentic ways of integrating
drama into the learning fabric of every school and the vital role of the school leader in taking this curricular decision. He will also share the different ways in which schools have successfully incorporated drama into their curriculum.
Jehan has a BA in Theatre Direction from Wesleyan College, USA and a MFA in Theatre Directing from Birbeck College, University of London, UK. He is the founder of the Mumbai-based Theatre Professionals. He has also taught as a guest faculty in Ninasam Theatre Institute, Attakallari Centre for Movement Arts
and is a core team member of the Young People's Theatre Programme I look forward to having you at what promises to be an engrossing and interactive session on 12 February 2016.
