DOT r.f. - The Association of Drama and Theatre




DOT is a drama pedagogical competence center that arranges drama and theatre education for all ages, ranging from children to seniors. We hold historical time-travel workshops at museums around Helsinki; audience development workshops in cooperation with different theatres and museums; Theatre In Education (TIE) programs, as well as tailor-made drama workshops for a wide range of occasions.

DOT is interested in new transsectoral forms of work in schools, institutions of Fine Arts and cultural centers. We hope to create new forms of practice and collaboration where applied drama, pedagogy and community development meet.
DOT was established in 2006 on the initiative of Anne Sandström. The current personnel of 15 consists of drama teachers, actors and others working actively with drama in education.

For any further questions or enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us!
