‘On Call’ at Edinburgh Festival 2010
Event Name: On Call
Date: Monday 16th August
Time: 13.30 – 15.00
Venue: Forest Fringe Cafe, 3 Bristo Place, Edinburgh EH1 1EY
An invitation to theatre practitioners in Edinburgh to meet informally with experienced creative producers, directors, and programmers for free impartial advice, support and exchange.
About On Call: Originated in the West Midlands, now coming to the Forest Fringe, Edinburgh. ‘On Call’ has been developed as an action research project following ‘The Challenge of Change’ event in November 2009 which started to answer the question ‘How do we create a better future for independent theatre, here, in the West Midlands’. On Call in Edinburgh 2010 offers a place for ideas to be exchanged and questions to be answered in the informality of the Forest Fringe cafe.
All we ask is that you come prepared to talk about your ideas or practice. ‘On Call’ is not about pitching your work but rather, about talking informally with seasoned practitioners who may shed some more light on how to avoid the pit falls and how to capitalise on the successes. You can come armed with specific questions or come just to listen to the experiences of others. For more information about ‘On Call’ find us on Facebook: ‘The Challenge of Change: On Call’
