2017 Central Region Conference…Call for Proposals!

Dear Central Region Members,

a
I hope this message finds you all well and that you had a good holiday season and a good beginning to 2017!

a
Our Central Region Conference is scheduled for April 29 & 30, 2017 and will take place this year at Nichols Hall in MANHATTAN, KS at Kansas State University.

a
The theme this year is:

Finding Our Niche: Where in the Central Region Are the Drama Therapists.

a
At times, we in the Central Region can feel a little lost and lonely when it comes to finding work or opportunities for our work. While some may find a job as a drama therapist, others will incorporate drama therapy in their work or meld drama therapy into other helping fields.

a
This year at the Central Region Conference, we will invite our regional members to come together to share their techniques, examples, experiences, connections, and ideas of how they have found a place for themselves as a drama therapist within their work. We would like a variety of presentation-based and experiential-based workshops which include not only drama therapy but other professions that relate to drama therapy.

a
Rates for the conference will the same as last year. The conference fee is $50.00 for students and $60.00 for professionals for the entire weekend. Those presenting will receive a $10.00 discount.

a
In addition, we will be offering four scholarships that will be utilized toward the conference fee. The scholarships will be provided to one student attendee, one non-student attendee, one student presenter, and one professional presenter. More information on these scholarships will be provided when the conference registration information opens.

a
No meals are included again this year; however, Kansas State University is near Aggieville, a small business section which includes many great restaurants such as Rock-A-Belly Deli, Keltic Star, and Bluestem Bistro, among many others. Additionally, we hope to help students connect with other students for housing shares.

a
Updates regarding the conference will be posted on the NADTA central region blog: https://centralregiondramatherapy.wordpress.com/

*****Registration for the conference will be available at http://www.nadta.org starting early March 2017.*****
