HOW CAN WE CONTINUE TO NURTURE NEW WORK FOR THEATRE IN THE EAST MIDLANDS?

Theatre Writing Partnership is calling writers, performers, companies, directors, producers, designers, technicians, marketeers, dramaturgs and managers: you are invited to join them for one day in Open Space addressing the above question and ANY related issues.

This is a great opportunity for the theatre and performing community in the East Midlands to gather and work on what could be improved, the things that we are passionate about and the things we wish were different. The event will be facilitated by Nick Sweeting from Improbable who have pioneered the use of Open Space within the UKʼs artistic community.

This is an event for everybody with a passion for theatre in the East Midlands – you bring the agenda and you start the discussion, TWP will provide the space and the fuel to keep the conversation flowing.

What is Open Space?

Although OPEN SPACE may be new to you, it has been used all over the world with great success. Unlike other conference formats, it is an exciting open-ended event that enables a self-organising group to use its collective imagination to set the agenda and deal with complex issues through a series of participant lead breakout sessions.

This model:
· Allows great results to be achieved in an incredibly short space of time
· Allows participants to be proactive in establishing and solving common issues
· Ensures that no-one will be bored by never ending key note speeches!

By the end of the event the following will have occurred:
· Every issue of concern to anybody will have been raised, if they took responsibility for doing that
· All issues will have received full discussion, to the extent desired
· A full report of issues and discussions will be in the hands of all participants
· And YOU will have taken part in making it happen

A strong point of Open Space is its ability to unite groups of enormous diversity, to that end we are encouraging everybody to participate. Please forward this email to any theatre practitioner who you think would be interested in having their say.

The event will take place on Friday 23rd September @ The Guildhall, Derby. 10:00 – 17:00.

RSVP
In order to feed everyone it would be useful to have a good indication of how many people intend to attend. Please therefore send an RSVP to bianca@theatrewritingpartnership.org.uk and tell them your dietary needs.

See you there……
