New Year // New Discussions


Lydia Cotrell – Hair Story

New Year // New Discussions
Monday 18 January, 7pm, Main Studio
This event has passed.

Got a problem in your producing practice you want to tackle?
An issue with the industry you’d like to discuss?
Looking to build relationships with other producers and makers?
Want to make some real changes in the New Year?

New Year // New Discussions is a pilot of a new type of mixer: part networking evening, part support group, part pressure unit.

We want to start 2016 by reflecting on what we’re doing well, and making improvements for the future. The evening will involve short discussions, over a few drinks on issues commonly encountered in the practice of making and producing performance work.

The purpose of this event is to find common ground with those at different levels of experience and come up with some individual and collective actions in our working lives.

For this session, we have invited four guests to prompt discussions on these topics:


Nikki Tomlinson, Artist’s Adviser and Producer at Artsadmin, CDS Trustee
Priya Mistry, Multidisciplinary Artist, CDS artist member
Robert Hesp, Live Artist and Dancer, CDS artist member
Ellie Hartwell, Producer at Russell Maliphant Company, CDS artist member

The discussions will be followed by an open session to record and plan next actions.

So come along, have a drink on us, and let’s see what we can do, together.
