Led by Greyscale Theatre Company’s Artistic Director, Selma Dimitrijevic and featuring Northern Stage's Artistic Director Lorne Campbell, this open discussion is a space for conversation about making work for mid-scale venues, compared with small-scale/fringe. The conversation will cover writing, directing, devising and marketing and will analyse questions such as who are your audiences and who is the work for? We are interested in hearing about your opinion and experiences of working between the two scales, and will offer support and guidance on how to transition between the two.

The workshop will be BSL interpreted and a notetaker will be making a record of the workshop to be shared with participants. If you have any access requirements please contact Chloe at [email protected].
