Recap: 14th Annual Teachers Institute
Thank you to Tim Webb and all the teachers and teachers-to-be who joined us for the 14th annual Teachers Institute, Wed., Feb. 27, 2019, in Knoxville, TN, for a day of learning, inspiration and creative renewal.
The theme for the day was “Theatre for All Abilities.” It was an honor to welcome Tim Webb, co-founder of Oily Cart in the U.K., which makes “All Sorts of Theatre for All Sorts of Kids.” Since 1981, Oily Cart Theatre has created original, interactive, multi-sensory theatre that has captivated audiences around the globe. We hope everyone took home new tools to reach students on the autism spectrum, those with learning disabilities, and those who have nontraditional learning styles.
Read more about the day’s activities and about Tim Webb’s practices in Hop on the Cart: Making Theatre the Oily Cart Way, featured in the Spring 2019 issue of Southern Theatre Magazine.
