In partnership with our host venue Dundee Rep Theatre, Youth Theatre Arts Scotland was proud to present the National Convention of Youth Drama 2024, affectionately known as #DramaCon2024, on Saturday 30 March 2024.

Delegates from across Scotland, and beyond, joined us for a full day of learning, discussions, workshops and networking. The Convention welcomes everyone who uses drama and theatre in their work with young people, from youth theatre leaders, theatre practitioners, and drama teachers, through to youth workers, community learning professionals, students, and emerging young leaders.

The focus of the 2024 convention was Acting on our Learning.
