Level Up!

Friday and Saturday, August 26 & 27, 2022

Last year we broke out of our boxes and knocked through barriers, but now it’s time to push further and LEVEL UP for our students, our communities, and ourselves!

We are excited to meet again in Columbus, GA at the CSU RiverPark campus and bring back our TWO DAY Georgia Theatre Educator Conference! On August 26th and 27th, we will gather together to learn, from artists all over, how to Level Up in the game of Theatre Ed.

Every workshop will be hands-on, unique, and challenging There will not only be live discussions, but also a Keynote Presenter to help us bring teaching games to master level, and beyond! Will you leave a game master?
