Abstract: 

In June 2008 the Australian Government embarked on the development of a national curriculum. Initially, announcements about development of learning areas in Phase 1 (English, mathematics, science and history) and Phase 2 (geography and languages) were released. But where were the arts, and therefore drama, positioned? This article reports on the advocacy strategy employed by Drama Australia through the National Advocates for Arts Education (NAAE) to position the arts in the Australian national curriculum for development, trial and implementation.
