Producing Performing Arts in the Estuary

Date: Wednesday 23rd March

Location: Online, Zoom

Cost: Free

About the Event

Join host Jo Crowley for an open conversation with established Estuary producers to explore what it means to produce performing arts along the Estuary. With the April NPO deadline looming and given our proximity to London as part of the perceived ‘rich South’, let’s discuss:

  • How place and space influence our practices?
  • As Estuary producers, how do we shape performing arts in our region?
  • What is distinctive about producing here, now?
