Open Forum

Making Art
Friday 31 July, 11am-1pm

With so many 2020 plans on hold or deferred, there’s an awful lot of uncertainty about the future of production and performance.  In this session, Peter Jordan of SLUA and producer Kate Ferris will share the latest thinking on rehearsal and performance protocols for dance and theatre. Artists, directors and producers who have planned projects and programmes for remaining months of 2020 and into next year will identify the resources and supports essential to making work, share their insights and approach as well as fresh thinking about production and audiences. The aim of this session is to better inform your programme plans and any application to the Arts Council’s Commissioning or other schemes in advance of their opening dates. We’ll send you more details of this event and how to register next week and, as always, it’s open to all.
