A new vision for Scene

12 September 2022

As many of you will already know, we are taking a new approach to Scene and from September we will be publishing the first issue for 2022-2023.

I recently took on the role of Scene editor and am excited to share the developments with you. Scene is such an integral part of what we produce and has, over the last 21 years, been such an invaluable source of shared knowledge. I am honoured to be in this role and to introduce Scene to a wider audience. 

Our vision for Scene is:

– To create an informative, educational and inspiring journal and magazine

– To offer an outstanding resource for members, artists, arts educators and arts organisations

– To become a respected theatre and education journal

– To offer an array of articles relevant to the issue’s theme from a broad range of contributors

– To ensure diverse voices are represented

– To develop a key area of ISTA’s work

– To share and develop ISTA’s current work

– To share current and cutting edge artistic and educational practice

– To profile exciting arts and cultural organisations and partners

Alongside a new fresh design and in addition to the wealth of experience and knowledge within the ISTA community, each issue will contain articles from a broad collection of authors and will cover a wide selection of writing connected to the issue’s theme. We have contributions from teachers, academics, industry professionals, education specialists, artists and, importantly, young people.

Some of you have already been in contact sharing ideas and offering to either write an article or kindly allowing us to feature recent writing and we are extremely grateful. If you have any further ideas for projects we could feature, case studies, reflections, lesson or unit plans, then please do let me know.

At its heart Scene will always remain focussed on our members & wider community so please do not hesitate to share your feedback and thoughts.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Scene editor
