Akhila and Devika have written a new article about their work with Aagaaz, looking at the varied possibilities of conducting process drama workshops for young children in the online medium. It is based on Sparks and Spooks, a workshop for 5–7 year olds, conducted by them in October 2020.
It can also be accessed publicly (and shared) on this link.
An older (shorter) version of the same article was published on this blog in October 2020 and can be found here.
