Dennis-Gupa-new-headshotDoctoral student Dennis Gupa has been awarded this year’s Ada Slaight Drama in Education Award by the Young People’s Theatre for his work on climate change.

Gupa is studying Sea Rituals, Climate Change and Applied Theatre Research at the University of Victoria (UVic).

Gupa will use the $10,000 prize to craft a performance that will involve artists from the Philippines and Canada, as well as Indigenous elders and their seacoast communities, who together will build an ecological framework to understand the relationships between human beings, the ocean and the earth.
