Invitation to What Next? – Supporting Change in the Performing Arts
Centre Stage Seminar, Ireland
Wednesday 1 February, 11.30am-12.30pm

Theatre Forum invites you, your colleagues, and students to a Centre Stage Zoom Seminar on St. Brigid’s Day.

Chaired by Jenny Mcdonald of Solo Sirens, it is open to all academics, lecturers, and students in academies and third level education institutions. Please register in advance so we can send you the Zoom webinar link.

In this Seminar, artists talk about the value of the Centre Stage programme in their own professional lives, policy makers about their work to effect structural changes, and activists about equality initiatives. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss equality, equal opportunities, and how you think systemic change for the better could be achieved in the future.

Centre Stage I Online is a course designed to develop self-promotion and artistic leadership skills. It is available in six different languages so that students and practitioners can take the course at entirely their own pace, and it is free of charge.

Centre Stage I Film reflects on diversity within the performing arts. It available for download with subtitles in English, Swedish, Spanish, French, and German.

The full film is available to watch at this link.

There is also a Seminar Academic Resource Pack available.
