On Producing: Industry, Infrastructure and Cultures of Change

February 25, 2019  NUI, Galway

This event investigates the role of the producer and the processes of production with a particular emphasis on how change can be facilitated to occur. The primary analysis is directed at producing for theatre and performance, but takes account of the intersections and relationships with the wider creative arts industry. This event is intended to examine producing from multiple perspectives and areas of expertise, including the history of producing, networks and training, hosting and touring, festivals and events, budgets and financial planning, the impact of identity politics at policy and decision-making level, and the development of storytelling content.

The aim of the workshop is to situate the trajectory and legacy of storytelling and narratives in modern contexts that illuminate gendered experience, utilising the methodology and principles of feminism. Chairs will introduce topics, which are then open to the floor for discussion, analysis and debate.
