This session was called by Susie Crow; meanwhile, the group next to it ended up discussing motherhood and childcare as well.
This session was called by Niamh de Valera, Executive Director of the Blue Elephant Theatre, which has been extremely supportive of small-scale dance over many years. After a while, this session merged with the one on gatekeepers.
This was not a session held on the day, but as Dr Sara Houston of Roehampton University and Chair of People Dancing was unable to attend, she prepared the following, which fits in beautifully alongside the session reports.
Fittingly, this was the only session on offer for the final slot today, called by myself, which enabled us to revisit the themes of the day and prioritise actions, changes and areas to tackle - and where we go from here.
This was our opening session, called by Donald Hutera and attended by almost everyone, and in true Donald style, it rapidly digressed to cover pretty much everything across the industry.
This was a merged session between mine on 'Who Are Our Gatekeepers' and Bruce Marriott's session on 'Where Are The Decision-Makers?'; we were later joined by Niamh de Valera's session asking what a fringe theatre can do to help. The notes were kindly taken by Kimberley Harvey of Subtle Kraft Co.
