Theatre Bristol and Mayfest’s rather lovely Artist Breakfasts bring together artists and anyone else who’s interested for croissant-fuelled discussions about Big Ideas in contemporary performance. Expect to hear a handful of short, inspiring case studies from Mayfest artists and beyond to kick things off, followed by lots of talking, thinking and drinking of tea.
We’re hosting two Breakfasts at Mayfest 2012. The first looks at how artists and scientists collaborate and it’s happening on Wednesday 23 May at Bordeaux Quay from 11am – 1pm. Speakers will include Melanie Wilson, talking about her piece Autobiographer, Angie Bual from Trigger will be telling us about working with psychiatrists on Heliotrope, and Jenny Patonwill be talking about the Wellcome Foundation‘s role in supporting art-science collaboration.
We’re quite excited.
The second Breakfast asks, do artists have a responsibility to be political? and will take place at Spike Island on Saturday 26 May, 11am – 1pm.
Tickets are free, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming so that we can make sure we’ve got enough croissants.
