Could Immersive Democracy Work in Your School?
Immersive Democracy is a program that involves elements of immersive theater to increase engagement, voice, and agency in
schools and classes. As the world becomes flatter, and consensus-led decision-making takes precedence, Immersive Democracy is an innovative approach that has been applied in a
range of settings from business, to community development, to schools. Alex Bell and Sylvan Baker met and developed Immersive Democracy during their work with the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). Join us to explore how you can use it to authentically provide a voice to all stakeholders and learners.
