open space and provocations – Stronger Together – June 29th #artstogether

17 May

Stronger Together

A national conversation about collaboration, sharing and working in partnership.
On 29th June, Northern Stage and Pilot Theatre will host an afternoon in Newcastle of creative thinking to inspire and provoke . If you are an artist, producer, curator, facilitator, activist or strategist, we hope you will join us in Newcastle.  Supported by Arts Council North East, this is a rare opportunity to inform cultural policy, stimulate debate, share experience and meet some future collaborators.
Are we prepared to give up some individual autonomy in order to innovate together?  How do we shift the debate from efficiencies to sustained creative action? What models of collaboration and sharing can we celebrate and learn from? Is there a limit to the value of working together?
We will be stirred, motivated and challenged by, amongst others, Kate McGrath (Fuel), Katherine Zeserson (Sing Up/SageGateshead), Alan Lane (SlungLow), Maria Balshaw (Whitworth and Manchester Galleries) Lyn Gardner and Streetwise Opera. More contributors announced soon.
The event will include:
???          Curated conversations with impressive collaborators from across the cultural sector and beyond
???          Case-studies of ambitious strategic partnerships
???          A giant living room on our main stage for open space debate and discussion
???          Creative speed-dating for artists and producers to swap ideas.
There will also be opportunities to get involved online.  Watch this space.

Free to take part.

Affordable tapas, wine and good company for those who can stay in the evening.
