Discuss and Exchange: Open Space

  • Theatre Deli (Studio) 202 Eyre Street Sheffield S1 4QZ (map)

An open mic session for artists! After lunch each day delegates are invited to fill a 10-minute slot: 5-mins for presentation and 5-mins of discussion. This can be used to share practice or present an idea, question, problem etc. If you’d like to take a slot write your name up on the list on the door of Theatre Deli Studio and take any images for presentations to the Studio between 12.30 - 1.30 so they can be loaded on to the laptop.

The Open Space will be hosted by theatre maker Shabina Aslam who will kick-off proceedings with a 5-minute presentation of her ‘Bussing Out’ project.

Bussing Out: an exploration of the experiences of migrant children with Bradford Education and The Dispersal Policy 1965 – 1976. This is a Phd with the University of Huddersfield as well as a theatrical production with Theatre in the Mill in Bradford. The production will be realised as documentary theatre within an installation.
