TEFO believes that education and the arts have a lot in common and can work together to exert an influential betterment for individuals and the society. Through Promotion, Advocacy, Connection and Networking, Research and Development, we advance drama education in various fields.

In recent years, TEFO has organized a number of seminars, video sharing sessions, international conferences, overseas study tours which altogether serve as the platform for dissemination of practice and experience. Also, TEFO also plays a crucial role in documenting local experience through the publication of the sector’s only professional journal and magazine in Hong Kong. This is vital to the promotion and development of the practice of drama/theatre education.

On the other hand, TEFO actively promotes pilot programmes such as the “Heritage Theatre” production series, which investigated the probability of the utilization of applied theatre in local history and heritage protection. Such programmes serve as an important reference of practical experience for the field.
