Abstract

I explore, and reflect on, the everyday ethical practices of drama facilitation. Rather than being
a set of principles I apply, ethics emerge as I respond to situations that arise in a drama
workshop. Their significance calls for understanding workshop facilitation as a space of
containment. This offers the possibility of transforming personal and social being through the
tensions and possibilities of interactive activities and conversations. To illustrate, I reflect
upon an experience in a high school where an exploration of racism led to my learning from
(and through) facilitation practice. Using a hermeneutic process of interpretation and
interrogation that draws on the work of German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer, I explore
how I moved beyond ethics to ethical know-how.
