Drama, Culture and Empowerment: The IDEA Dialogues (2nd, Brisbane, Australia, July 1995).
O'Toole, John, Ed.; Donelan, Kate, Ed.
Selected and crafted from presentationsn at the Second World Congress of the International Drama/Theatre and Education Association (IDEA) held in Brisbane, Australia, July 1995, the essays in this book tell stories of using drama and theatre in a broad range of cultural contexts, but all with the same aim of real-life enfranchisement. The contributors' voices all address that aim in one way another and so provide not a series of monologues but a conversation, which is why the book is called "The IDEA Dialogues."
