Abstract:

This report aimed to research and develop a set of ethical guidelines for practice in participatory theatre for use in Higher Education (HE) by teachers, researchers and students.

The work was within an Action Research framework in which participants were invited to reflect on their approach to ethics. The research was collaborative and included two levels of exploration:

Level one – interviews and workshops with practitioners and HE lecturers and students to identify concerns and issues derived from curriculum planning, teaching and learning and students’ practice.

Level two – review of findings with collaborators to reflect on the material from the interviews and workshops and to extrapolate principles underpinning the projected ethical guidelines.

A summary of outcomes is provided followed by a provisional framework for ethical practice in participatory theatre.
