The 12th Annual International Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Conference brings together a community of people committed to liberatory education and social justice. Featured speakers and workshops will focus on many aspects of critical pedagogy and theater for change. We invite you to submit your proposal for a conference session now. PTO Conference attendees represent a range of experience in their community work and critical praxis, including theorists, educators, theater workers, artists and others committed to transformative pedagogy and social equity.

In this attached Call for Proposals, we would like you to share your theoretical understanding and exploration as well as best practices that relate to and build upon the theories and practice of Paulo Freire, Augusto Boal and other critical educational theorists and artists.

The theme, ?Engaging Community: Creating Critical Praxis,? challenges us to reflect deeply and critically on our own assumptions, our ways of thinking and knowing, and our actions and their impact on local and global communities.

PLEASE see our website at for more information and online proposal submission.

** Hosted by the School of Education at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Co-hosts include the Department of Dramatic Arts and the Department of Communication Studies.
