Event description

Description

DOC (duty of care) - First session topic: HAPPINESS in the Theatre Industry

WHAT IS IT?

Meet-up to discuss all the things that influence our industry and us.

Specifically looking at language, education, risk-assessing/safe-guarding.

Talking about large and small stigmatised topics, in a safe and structured way.

This isn’t a networking night, it’s an opportunity to safely share our thoughts, forum style.

It is a 3 hour, free ticketed event.


WHO WE ARE

A bit about us: We are immersive theatre makers; performers, directors and producers. We all work in London, sometimes together. We are concerned with the duty of care we have as theatre makers, not only to ourselves, but the audiences we reach. We feel there is a higher risk in immersive theatre and wish to find better ways of catering for the challenges it presents.


WHAT WILL IT CONTAIN?

Special guests, sharing their expertise from working in the industry.

Asking pointed questions, with the aim to create awareness and identify possible solutions.

We will record every session, to make available as a podcast.

Games/exercises to enable active learning and equal sharing.


WHAT WILL THE STRUCTURE BE?

Intros, who we all are (or what we do).

What the topic currently is?

What we would like it to be?

How do we get it there? (realistically and practically).

Conclusion, and pick the next discussion.
