This workshop focuses on the PAC structure and will include presentational and practical elements to demonstrate how to apply the fundamentals of Intimacy Training to approach teaching drama. By using these fundamentals and actively engaging in consent based practices, teachers can create classrooms that promote inclusivity, agency and communication.
