Getting Out of the Box (OOTB) - How to Survive as a Dance Artist
Wed, November 2, 2016, 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT
Free event suitable for dancers, movers, shakers, theatre practitioners, live artists, circus performers and anyone else who fancies it!
Join Karla Shacklock for an afternoon of tea and nice biscuits, which will include talking, reflecting, listening, and above all thinking about how performance artists can get out of their boxes.
An opportunity for artists, producers, programmers, funders and venues to come together, to have authentic conversations (no holds barred except moaning!), to play with thinking in new ways and to consider how we can work together in order to survive and thrive.
Karla will share her OOTB experience and you will hear a group of inspiring dance legends, such as Charlotte Vincent, Theo Clinkard, Jean Abreu, Liz Aggiss, Wendy Houston, Ben Duke, Lailla Diallo, talk about theirs. This is an opportunity to enjoy some safe time and space to think about your own journey.
Topics will include: touring, funding, health and wellbeing, networking, parenthood, and generally how to keep going when it starts to feel tough. Hopefully you'll leave feeling a bit safer, more empowered and like you are part of a wide and special world.
Free -RSVP via Eventbrite
