Hosted by Sally Rose and Xavier de Sousa with support from Theatre Bristol and Mayfest, this meeting follows on from similar gatherings that took place in 2015 – including a meeting at the last Mayfest in 2015.
The aim is to connect independent and venue producers, artists and those interested in producing. This is an open gathering and you can expect informal discussions about working independently, supporting the work of artists across art-forms, ways that we can look to further connections and networks.
At this gathering we are taking the lead from the Mayfest breakfast discussion topics, and will have a specific focus on diversity and how to ensure that opportunities to engage in this type of work are open to more people – giving an outward focus to some of the things we will address.
The event is free, but please book a place via Eventbrite so we know how many people to expect.
Producer Gatherings were initiated during Sally & Xav’s residency at the Live Art Development Agency, and are part of a research project that proposes to connect independent producers, venue-based producers, company producers or those interested in producing, including self-producing artists.
