The Emergence of Distinctive Voices: unique practices of drama at school and in the community

Carole Marceau Maud Gendron-Langevin About the authors


This article will discuss the unique education programs provided in school and in community-based settings. Arts education is part of the Quebec Education Program, but certain environments offer specific activities giving youth the opportunity to express themselves in a particular context. Following responses to a questionnaire, a comparative chart was created, putting forth the differences and similarities amongst those groups. Finally, recommendations and future research ideas were formulated, in order to extend this study to a wider number of schools and community centers in the province of Quebec.
