Thank you for your interest in attending the Australasian Association for Theatre, Drama and Performance Studies Conference 2022.

ADSA 2022 theme – Traveling Together – is drawn from the University’s gifting of a new name by mana whenua, Ngāti Whātua Ōrakei, the hapu on whose lands city campus of the University’s is located. We invite you to travel with us as we reconnect, look back at where we’ve come from, and continue to chart our journeys ahead.

The 2022 conference will be held in-person, with some of the sessions being livestreamed/recorded.

Join us! Let’s create an unforgettable experience.
