Singapore Drama Educators Association

Singapore's leading organisation for drama educators, teachers, and theatre professionals

Established in 2002 as a not-for-profit organisation, SDEA’s mission is to advance the profession of the drama/theatre educator and advocate for the practice and value of drama and theatre in performance, education and community. SDEA is run by a volunteer committee comprising 9 members elected on a 2-year cycle supported by a secretariat at Goodman Arts Centre.

Singapore Drama Educators Association is a recipient of the National Arts Council's Major Grant for the period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2019.

SDEA's work as an advocacy and professional development body has earned recognition from IDEA's President Robin Pascoe as meeting the goals for the development of arts education mapped out in UNESCO's 2nd World Conference on Arts Education Agenda.
