Summary In 2006 Drama Australian launched the VINE Project, bringing together groups of drama students within schools, universities and the broader community to make group performances based on a common theme. Using the VINE Project's multi-user blogging environment, group or individuals maintained blogs of their performance-making processes. This allowed the work to be shared within the VINE Project community and potentially a world-wide audience.

This paper contributes to the discussion on the applications of information and communication technologies (ICT) in drama and theatre education. It considers the blog, emerging from web-culture, as a space for groups and individuals to reflect upon performance-making processes. A range of VINE Project participants was asked to reflect and comment upon the performance-making and blogging experience. This paper presents emerging understandings of the role of blogs in encouraging reflection, in creating a sense of group identity and significance, in validating performance-making processes and in building a sense of connection and community among student performance-makers.
